COFFEE CAKE RECIPE

The (amazing) coffee cakes shown above were baked by my grandmother, who passed the recipe along to me and now I am passing it along to you. These things are great for any occasion, not just brunch.

For two cakes as shown, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • Strawberry Jam

There’s a topping for it, too:

Topping ingredients:

  • 3 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pecans

These are designed to be baked in loaf pans.

Directions:

  • Cream* butter, sugar and vanilla.
  • Add eggs
  • Add flour mixture (flour, baking powder, baking soda)
  • Add sour cream
  • Prep loaf pans with cooking spray
  • Place 1/4 of above mixture into each loaf pan, for 1/2 of mixture total
  • Spread strawberry jam on top
  • Add remaining 1/2 of mixture to both pans
  • Top with……………..topping
  • Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees

*I did not know this was an action, rather than the ingredient cream itself and had to call later for clarification.

Try these out and enjoy! You won’t regret it!
