This delicious buttery sour cream coffee cake will quickly become a family favorite. Super easy to make and perfect for brunch. This is an easy cake anyone can make. You can add the glaze if you like, but it’s good without it. Love this with a hot cup of coffee!

Buttery Sour Cream Coffee Cake Ingredients

1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, softened (This is 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup)
3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Cream butter, sugar, eggs and sour cream in bowl with mixer.  Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla.
