Recipe of the Week

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

by MsFormaldehyde




I received this recipe from my boyfriend’s mom who used to make it for them as kids.  I tweaked it until it tasted the way I wanted it to.


1/2 cup butter, melted

1.5 cups sugar, divided

2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg whites

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1.5 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon nutmeg

1 tablespoon

3/4 brown sugar and cinnamon for top layer of batter


In a large bowl,  butter and 1.5 cups sugar until light fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with sour cream, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth.

Spoon batter into a greased 10-in. tube pan. Combine cinnamon,  brown sugar; sprinkle a over batter in pan. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
