Coffee Cake Sour Cream Recipe

Warm, buttery coffee cake: you just can't beat a good one. And Janice Kuhlmann's recipe for Sour Cream Coffee Cake is just that. With a lovely, tender interior and a slightly crunchy crust, it has a wonderful texture not unlike poundcake. But it's the lemon and almond flavors plus the full cup of walnuts that really take this Stafford Springs, Connecticut reader's cake over the top on taste.
