Cinnamon Coffee Cake Recipe

Cinnamon Coffee Cake Recipe

I love the excellent texture of this old-fashioned streusel-topped coffee cake. Always a crowd-pleaser, its pleasing vanilla flavor enriched by sour cream may remind you of breakfast at Grandma's! —Eleanor Harris, Cape Coral, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:16-20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2-3/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and 2 cups sugar until light fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with sour cream, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth.
  • 2. Spoon a third of batter into a greased 10-in. tube pan. Combine cinnamon, nuts and remaining sugar; sprinkle a third over batter in pan. Repeat layers two more times. Bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 16-20 servings.
