Who doesn’t like a cinnamon coffee cake? If you don’t care for coffee cake, I will have to reconsider our friendship…Yes, I know it’s full of carbs and blah, blah, blah….This cake is totally worth an extra mile on the treadmill.
Coffee cake is the most overlooked and under-rated cakes. Since it’s never made with coffee, the name must come from the fact that a cup of coffee, when paired with a slice of the cake is a satisfying, albeit decadent, way to start your morning.
This evening I noticed that we had sour cream in the fridge which was about to expire, and I had a hankering for something sweet. Thanks to Google, I discovered this recipe from taste of Home. It’s super-easy and the ingredients are very basic. The only change I made was baking it in a 8″x8″ pan which made for a thicker slice.
The cake itself is moist with a streusel layer and is great when eaten warm. Bake it in the evening, and heat up a slice in the morning… you’ll be glad you did.
