Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Cake

This is a really great coffee cake recipe, I found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook some time ago, and I've made it several times since then, this is definitely a favorite around our house.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake Recipe:

1 C Butter
2 3/4 C Sugar (Divided) 
4 Eggs
3 C Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
2 C Sour Cream
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs Cinnamon 

Bake at 350 for 53 minutes, the actual recipe says 60-65 minutes but in our oven it would be burnt in that amount of time. The worst thing you could possibly do when baking is to over cook your goods!! that or forget the sugar. :P
1 C Butter, 4 Eggs and 2 C Sugar

2 C Sour Cream, 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract, 3 C Flour, 1 Tsp Baking Soda and 1 Tsp Salt

Creaming Butter

Butter and Sugar Mixed Well

Going In The Oven!!

Oooo :)

Yum!! I think what makes this coffee cake have such a great texture is the sour cream. Speaking of texture, DO NOT over bake, it's better to check on your cake and it still not be done, than to check on it and it be over cooked, or even burnt. :( 

You can't really smell the coffee cake when it's in the oven, but when it comes out you sure know it, the kitchen smells scrumptious!!

Do you have a favorite flavored coffee cake?
