Sour Cream Coffee Cake


I couldn't remember the last thing I took a picture of, so I knew it was time to get on here... I got this recipe from Betty Crocker, but I mixed a little bit of a recipe from Barefoot Contessa. So here is the concocted version!

3 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
3/4 tsp of salt
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp of vanilla
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cup of sour cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an angel food pan.
Mix first 4 ingredients, set aside.
Beat sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. (the longer you beat them the fluffier they get).
Add flour mixture and sour cream alternating small amounts of both to blend them well.

Streusel:
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of salt
3 tbsp of butter

You can double this for a thicker swirl in your cake. Just blend this together til the butter is small chunks. I did 2 layers of steusel in the cake and a layer on top as well. It is entirely up to you!
Layer the cake mixture and streusel. Bake for 1 hour.

Glaze:
1 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup of powder sugar
2-3 tsp of milk

Combined ingredients. Add enough milk that it thickly drizzles over the cake. Bon App├ętit!
