Makes 1 Loaf Pan of Sour Cream Coffee Cake + Giveaway
For this post we’ve teamed up with our blogger & friend Megan over at Emotional Baker along with a group of other food bloggers to help her celebrate her 100th recipe posting (how exciting)! You can find the giveaway below.
Now I love Coffee Cake but I think that sometimes people are turned away from Coffee Cake because they think it has to have coffee in it. It does NOT have to have coffee in it. I don’t drink or buy coffee so I always make my recipes without any coffee flavoring. I looked up (googled) why it’s called Coffee Cake because it piqued my curiosity & found that it is intended to be eaten with a cup of coffee or flavored with coffee.
This recipe is great for breakfast or brunch. I usually make my coffee cake in a square 8×8 pan or a 9×13 pan or even a bundt pan but I thought it would be neat to try it in a loaf pan and just slice if off like bread, it actually makes it easier to serve that way.
This recipe makes one 9×5″ bread loaf pan (1.5-qt size). I used a Pyrex Basics 1.5-qt Loaf Dish(affiliate link).
- Coffee Cake:
- ¼ cup butter, softened (I use salted)
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup sour cream
- (1/8 teaspoon salt...if your not using salted butter)
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5" bread loaf pan.
- Prepare Topping: In a small bowl mix cinnamon & sugar together. Add in vanilla & mix until it becomes slightly crumbly.
- In a mixing bowl cream butter & sugar together with an electric mixer. Beat in egg. Mix in vanilla.
- In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, & baking soda together. Slowly add to the creamed mixture alternating because the flour mix & sour cream. Mix until everything is well combined.
- Pour half the batter into prepared loaf pan. Even it out with a rubber spatula.
- Sprinkle half the cinnamon/sugar mix over the batter. Pour remaining batter on. Smooth out & then sprinkle with remaining cinnamon/sugar.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
