Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

A while back I shared a coffee cake recipe that didn't have sour cream, so I thought that I would also share a recipe that did have sour cream.  After quite a few different recipes tried, adapted and altered, this is by far our families favorite!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  

Begin by making your streusel.  In a small bowl combine 4 tbsp butter, 6 tbsp flour, 2/3 c brown sugar and 3 tsp cinnamon.  Use a pastry cutter or fork to blend and cut the ingredients into one another.  Once a crumbly texture has been achieved, set aside to begin making the batter.

To make the batter, mix together 2 1/2 c flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda and also set aside.

In one more bowl, beat together 3/4 c of butter with 1 1/4 c of sugar.  The texture should become creamy.  Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time.  Then add 1 tsp of vanilla, beating until just combined.  

Set aside 1 1/2 c of sour cream and gather all your bowls of ingredients to complete your batter.  

Add your dry ingredients in 3 batches, alternating with the sour cream and mix on low until the batter is combined and smooth.

Pour half of the batter into a prepared pan and smooth over with a spatula.  Top the batter with half of your streusel.  Then add the second half of your batter to the pan, topping again with remaining streusel.  

Bake for 45 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack for about 10 minutes.  

Once completely cooled you can sprinkle with powdered sugar or a vanilla glaze, slice and enjoy!
