Recipe from Bites: Sour Cream Coffee Cake

by Jessie on December 8, 2012

This is the coffee cake we make every Christmas morning for Jesus’ birthday cake. It is SO moist!

(Adapted from


1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Mix in 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Spread 1/2 of batter in the prepared pan.

Prepare the filling: In a medium bowl mix 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and cinnamon. Sprinkle cake batter with 1/2 the filling. Spread second half of batter over the filling, and top with remaining filling.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
