For many years this has been one of my favorite coffee cakes. Because it is made with the finest ingredients: butter, sour cream, fresh eggs, vanilla and cinnamon and walnuts. The aroma fills my house with a luscious scent, I feel like I've produced something incredible each time I bake it. My son has loved it since he was a small boy, it's a great gift for him as a birthday cake and he's almost 48 years old!

How to Make Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare a TUBE PAN by buttering it and dusting it with flour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  3. Bake on the center shelf of oven for one hour, check it with a tooth pick, if it comes out clean it's done; if it needs a little more time try 5 mins. Cool on a rack in the pan for fifteen minutes.
  4. It's coated with sugar so it's tricky to take out of the pan without messing up the countertop, so use a cooky sheet or large plate to turn it out. Then cool slightly and turn it over again onto the large plate for storing or serving.
