Need a moist and delicious coffee cake, then you should consider this sour cream coffee cake. I needed to send some good to my husband's office and I picked this. It was a hit, they loved it.
It was simple to make and I had all the ingredients on hand, even the sour cream.
I won't explain how to make the cake since the directions are listed below and you can print it if you want. Here are the layers before going into the oven.
I made two streusel layers, and three batter layers. I wasn't sure that I would have enough batter, as you can see in the picture above, but when it baked, it was fine.You could always just make one streusel layer.
It looked good, even before adding the glaze. I am sure it would be good without the glaze, but the glaze made it so yummy.
Have a great day!
