Easy Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

This coffee cake is a favorite for breakfast or brunch. I've also taken it to potlucks and served it as dessert. Tender slices feature an appealing crunchy filling.

"I'm a beginning baker, so this recipe was not only easy to follow but it was absolutely delicious! My husband loves it and I intend on making more to bring to our families. We were both thoroughly impressed that it stayed moist for over 6 days!"
