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 eggs
1 cup sour cream

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. Mix well.  Fold in raisins.  Batter will be thick.  Spray a bundt pan generously and spread half the batter in the bottom of the pan. Add half the topping from recipe below,  spreading over batter.  Add the other half of the batter and the rest of the topping.  Cook in preheated 350 degree oven 45 to 55 minutes until center is done.  Let cool for about 20 minutes before removing from pan.  Pour glaze from recipe below over the cooked coffee cake or your can pour glaze over cake when it is served.  Enjoy!

1/2 cup walnut or pecan pieces
Whisk together ingredients in bowl.

  1. I don’t have a bundt pan can this be made in a 9×13 pan?

  2. Omg this cake is sooo delicious, but it only last a half a day . Thank you so much for sharing your amazing recipes. 🙂

  3. verlon kelty says:

    my mom called this cake [ sock it to me ] kids an grand kids loved it . an yes it freezes well .

  4. My great grandmother had a very similar recipe with walnuts and cinnamon. I omit the nuts usually because a lot of people dont eat nuts. But I think raisins will be an interesting addition. When I make it next I will have to make one with raisins (I usually make two at a time because they go so fast around my family)

  5. Can u make this bake with all the ingredients and leave the sour cream out?

  6. I made this with plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It was AMAZING!!!!

  7. Can. I made this cake and freeze it as I would love to serve it on Boxing Day. But I know I won’t have time to make it with all my grandchildren here
