Three Boys & an Old Lady

This blogging mama loves finding new things and spreading the word about fab finds

With all of these coffee giveaways recently featured on Three Boys and an Old Lady, I figured it was about time I shared a couple of my favorite coffee cake recipes. Coffee cake is one of the easiest baking recipes and this one is sure to please.  If you like you can add 1/2 chopped walnuts or pecans to the crumb topping for a little extra crunch. 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Stir flour and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 forks until crumbly. Press about 2 1/2 cups of the crumb mixture evenly on the bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.

2. Mix sour cream, egg, and baking soda; add to remaining crumb mixture and stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir together granulated sugar and cinnamon. Pour sour cream mixture over crumb crust in pan; sprinkle evenly with cinnamon mixture.

3. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean.
