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!

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

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add gradually to creamed mixture, beating after each addition.
  • 3Have 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.
  • 4Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
