Sunday Morning Quick Coffee Cake

 Sunday Morning
 Antonio Feralli

Good morning!  Ah, it’s Sunday morning and time for a coffee cake.  There’s nothing like it early in the morning with a cup of steaming coffee.  I love the aroma coming from the oven, filled with a great cinnamon fragrance.  It makes the house smell like a bakery…

This is a recipe of Mom’s; it’s moist, buttery and filled with plenty of good things!  She added 1 cup of sugar, I add ¾ cup; she had a great sweet tooth and loved her sweets.  It also combines sour cream and chopped nuts, with a nice flavorful streusel on top. 

This coffee cake is very good and quite easy to make; quick like she says!  Mix it together; pop it in the oven and Voila!  You are ready to enjoy it hot out of the oven, warm or room temperature.  And it even freezes well if you care to do so.  I like it right out of the oven myself!

So get to baking your coffee cake and brew up your coffee!     

Quick Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake


1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1½ cups flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

Streusel topping:

½ cup pecans, chopped
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon


Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing all the time.
Add sour cream and baking soda.  Stir.
Sift flour with baking powder, add to mixture, stirring well.
Add vanilla and blend.

Combine ingredients for streusel, reserving 1/3 cup for top.

Grease 8” x 8” baking dish.
Pour half of mixture in pan.
Sprinkle with nut and cinnamon streusel mixture.
Spread remaining batter on top.
Sprinkle with remaining streusel mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick tests clean.

I’m off to enjoy my big slice of coffee cake right now!  Here’s wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

    Alessandra, 'streusel'is a wonderful thing, yummy! That's what I love about these blogs also, we always can learn something new. Thanks for adding me and I have added you also!

    Sage, great! Tea works fine also! I have to have my coffee first thing in the morning. I read somewhere that apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning. Think I'll stick to coffee and you probably will to tea!

    Lyndsey, thanks! It sounds like you are still enjoying that sunny warm weather. Makes me so jealous!!!!!!!! I saw my first robin just the other day so maybe warm weather is heading here. Happy "lanaiing!!!" (Don't think that's a word but it works here!)

  22. Hi Pam!

  23. This recipe saved my life today!! I needed a quick baked good to take to my moms group. I was gonna do my crockpot oatmeal but i forgot to turn the crockpot on lastnight!! So at 630 this morning im up on google looking for something quick to bake. My group starts at 9!! I found this and it turned out great!! I didnt have sourcream in the house so i got back on google and found a substitute. It was simply evaporated milk and vinegar mixed together. It worked out great!! Everyone loved it! Thank you!!!!!
