I have made this coffee cake more than I have made anything else in the last few weeks. I think that I have made over 12 cakes already (I swear that I didn’t eat them all myself). This cake is exactly what you want in a coffee cake. Moist cake, sweet, crunchy, and cinnamon-y. Perfect to have with a steamy cup of coffee. A very nice way to start a day of you ask me.
I always give my children’s new teachers a first day of school present. I think that it is a nice way to say that we are looking forward to having them as our teacher. This year, I decided to make this coffee cake from Midwest Living. It is the best and easiest coffee cake ever. I love it, and can see myself making about a thousand different variations of this cake. I think that this cake would also make a really thoughtful hostess gift.
The recipe that I have included makes 1 cake for a 10-inch tube pan. I doubled it, and made them in disposable mini tube pans.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
