I made this coffee cake as part of a "Christmas Morning Food Basket". It was quite the hit so it's a keeper.

How to Make Sour Cream Coffee Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter bundt pan and dust with flour, knocking out excess.
  • 2Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  • 3Pulse walnuts, cinnamon, 1/4 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt in a food processor until nuts are chopped. Add melted butter and pulse once to combine.
  • 4Beat together remaining 1 1/2 sticks butter and remaining sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a standing mixer or 5 minutes with a handheld. Reduce speed to medium and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in sour cream and vanilla until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes more in a standing mixer or 4 minutes more with a handheld. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, scraping down side of bowl occasionally and mixing until just combined.
  • 5Sprinkle half of nut mixture evenly in bottom of a bundt pan. Spoon half of batter over nuts and smooth with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle batter in pan with remaining nut mixture and top with remaining batter, smoothing top. Bake in middle of oven until cake begins to pull away from side of pan and a tester comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
  • 6Cool cake in pan on a rack 1 hour, then run a thin knife around outer and inner edges. Place rack on top of pan, then fllip to invert cake onto rack. Cool completely.
