My mom always baked from scratch! She always made delicious cakes, bars and cookies for us (5 kids). This is one of her cakes that has become a favorite of my family and friends as well. Enjoy! my photos

I learned the hard way that this recipe is very forgiving. I misread the directions and added a whole 16oz. container of sour cream. But it still came out fantastic! This was fluffy, moist and very flavorful. Would go great with a cup of coffee, some milk, or even a glass of white wine! Perfect for the holiday's, a bake sale, brunch or a potluck.

How To Make mom's sour cream coffee cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, and sugar in a large bowl. Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla, beating on medium speed until well blended.
  • 2
    In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add gradually to creamed mixture, beating after each addition.
  • putting cinnamon sugar/walnuts in middle of cake
    3
    Have walnuts, sugar and cinnamon mixed together. Butter a 9-inch spring form pan. Put 1/2 the batter into pan and sprinkle 1/2 the cinnamon mixture over batter. Add remaining batter and sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon mixture. **batter will be thick, so I dollop it over the cinnamon layer of cake, and gently blend it together with the back of a spoon, then sprinkle cinnamon over top of cake.
