Weekend Party Girl :: Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Tune into Q13 FOX News this morning – ALL MORNING – for my holiday entertaining ideas

My family loves coffee cake.  I love coffee cake.  Around the holidays it seems like the perfect breakfast – especially for Christmas morning!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1/2 cup melted butter + 2 tablespoons at room temperature
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups + 2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Blend together melted butter, eggs, 1 cup of the sugar and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Pour dry ingredients into butter mixture blending until just combined. Add sour cream and combine with as few strokes as possible. Pour batter into an 8×8 baking dish.
With a pastry cutter (or a fork or your fingers) blend together remaining sugars, cinnamon, flour, and butter. Spread evenly across the top of the batter.
Bake for 45 minutes to one hour until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
