Cinnamon Coffee Cake

This is my tried-and-true coffee cake recipe. It's sweet and cake-like with a delicious cinnamon swirl. You can bake it two different ways (see hint below.)

Cinnamon Coffee Cake


1 C butter or margarine, softened
2 ¾ C sugar, divided
2 t. vanilla extract
4 eggs
3 C flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 C (16 oz) sour cream
2 T cinnamon
½ C chopped walnuts (optional)

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and 2 C sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt; add alternately with sour cream, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth. Spoon 1/3 of batter into a greased 10-in. tube pan. Combine cinnamon, nuts and remaining sugar; sprinkle 1/3 over batter in pan. Repeat layers two more times. Bake at 350 degrees for 70 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serving: 16-20 servings

Hint: I also make it in a 9 x 13 pan and cook it between 55-60 min.
