This is a simple, easy to make and yummy sour cream coffee cake recipe. It has sweet and crunchy streusel layers between the soft layers of cake.
Most streusel layers combine cinnamon and walnuts with a bit of sugar.
This recipe has an extra secret ingredient in the streusel – cocoa.
Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Mix the last 4 ingredients together to form the streusel mixture. (Sugar, cinnamon, cocoa and walnuts)
Combine the dry cake ingredients and mix until well blended.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and sour cream, then add the dry ingredient mixture.
Place about 1/3 of the cake mix in a greased tube or bundt pan. Layer 1/2 of the streusel over the cake batter. Add another layer of each and end with a layer of cake batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Tips and Variations:
- To lower the fat content, replace 1 cup of the sour cream with a cup of plain yogurt.
- Sprinkle powdered sugar on the top of the cake by sifting it through a strainer while holding it over the cake.
