Yum. Coffee cake! My son LOVES the Starbucks Coffee Cake so I had to make this treat for him at home. It was silly easy and really tasty. Extremely moist and what's so great about it is that you can substitute the sour cream for your favorite vanilla yogurt.
1 cup of room temperature butter
2 cups of white sugar
1 cup of sour cream or vanilla yogurt
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.
- In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup of butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Mix in 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Spread 1/2 of batter in the prepared pan.
- Prepare the filling: In a medium bowl mix 1/3 cup of flour, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter and cinnamon. Spread second half of batter over the filling and top with remaining filling.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes in oven or until toothpick comes out clean.
