Easy Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

Notes

• This is one of my niece’s recipes. I was pretty meh when she suggested it, but honestly, this is a simple coffee cake recipe that tastes phenomenal!! You would never guess that from the ingredients as they are pretty basic, but OMG this tastes fantastic.

• While my (ok her) directions call for a 13″x9″ pan, I have made this by dividing this sour cream coffee cake recipe into two loaf pans and baking. I actually prefer those portions as we will eat one, and freeze one. If you decide to do that, watch the baking time.

• If freezing, wrap well as nothing tastes worse than freezer burned cake. (You freeze after baking and cooling.)

• Instead of lining your pan with parchment paper and spraying with a non-stick spray, you can grease and flour the baking pan. However, the parchment paper method makes removing the sour cream coffee cake from the baking pan a breeze!

  1. Ann,
    Nowhere do you mention the size of the loaf pans that you used for the sour cream coffee cake or the rum cake. The rum caske recipe sounds pretty much the same as mine which I bake in a bundt pan. Also for the chocolate version pictured did you use a chocolate cake mix or chocolate pudding?
    Thank you,
    Linda

    • Hi Linda,

      The loaf pans shown are:

      Le Creuset pan is listed as: 2-pound loaf tin; 11.5 x 3 x 7 inches

      Chicago Metallic pan is listed as: 1.5-Pound loaf pan; measures 10-inch by 5-inch by 3-inch

      I measured both to confirm these dimensions are accurate (they are).

      For the rum cake: the chocolate rum cake was made with a fudge chocolate cake mix, chopped pecans, and instant coconut pudding. I used Duncan Hines cake mix.

      Ann

      • Ann,
        Thank you for replying so promptly! Can you use a standard 9”x5” loaf pan? How do you adjust the cook time? I only have 8”x4” & 9”x5” pans. It drives me up a wall when a recipe has an odd sized & very unusual size pan that you need, that’s sometimes hard to find. Also it may not be useful other than for that particular recipe. With my luck we wouldn’t like it!

        Thank you,
        Linda Stoddard

        • Linda, I checked the bake time about 7 minutes early the first time I used the loaf pans. I then checked 3 minutes later (repeating) until my toothpick came out clean. It turned out to not be much different for the baking time than the 13×9 cook time that the original recipe uses (with my loaf pans). However, since loaf pans are different sizes (and yours would be thicker), and not all oven run exactly to temp, you will have to check too.

  2. Mother of 3 says:

    Those look yummy and they sound nice and easy to make. Pinned.

  3. Girl please. I don’t know what you’re talking about – freeze. We’d have that gone in two days. Looks delicious! Pinning and trying this weekend! BTW, saw this on the SYS link party. 😉

  4. Wow! Delicious cake Within only 45 minutes! And this looks perfect for brunch! Also, I think The minimum size of the pan is quite okay in the matter of cake’s quantity.
