Old Fashioned Coffee Cake

Sunday, March 26, 2017
Sometimes I just want something sweet in the morning and I love coffee cakes, they are so comforting, not too sweet and just the perfect way to start a day!



There are two that I love and I posted both, one with sour cream the other is more of a buttermilk and oats style cake.



These cakes are both decadently delicious!



I can't decide which one I love more.



Pictured is the first recipe, and I always double the topping recipe, because I love a thicker crunchy topping!



I always loved the taste of dense scratch cake with cinnamon and nuts.



It's not a large cake so I don't have to worry about leftovers for days with just the two of us.



Turns out to be both our favorites now.



I don't make this very often unless I just happen to have some sour cream leftover from the holidays.



Maybe you will want to use your up on this one too!

Coffee Cakes




Coffee cake is a moist, tender cake that is usually topped with some kind of streusel topping and served alongside coffee or tea at breakfast.


A coffee cake might have coffee in it, but not in either one of these two.


The name comes from the fact that it is served with coffee, not because it has coffee in it.

Mom's Coffee Cake



My mom loved to bake, and everything she made was delicious and basic.


No one liked nuts in the family growing up so she didn't add them, however, dad loved raisins and often you would


find them mixed in with the topping.


Feel free to add whatever you like.

  2. How did you know I had sour cream left over too! This will be our Sunday morning treat! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yup, it's like you posted this just for me. I'm the type that leaves a container of sour cream even if there are just a few tablespoons left because you just never know when you only need a few tablespoons...or a half cup....of sour cream. I love the look of this!

  4. Oh, yum. Coffee cakes are my absolute favorite!

  5. I love sour cream in coffee cakes. (Truth be told, I could eat sour cream with a spoon, like some people do with peanut butter. Wait . . . I do that, too.)
    This is a perfect size for me and Mr. Rosemary!
