The Best Cinnamon Coffee Cake Recipe

When it comes to coffee cake, lots of people think it's all about the streusel. While streusel is great, there's more than topping to a great coffee cake!

The cake should be moist, buttery, and so velvety it almonst melts in your mouth.  The streusel has to be rich.  Click for the recipe or read on to see how it comes together.

Here's what you'll need to make your new go-to sour cream coffee cake recipe.

One you mix up your cinnamon ribbon, you'll remove some and then add butter and flour to the rest. Brown sugar keeps it soft, and it has a little espresso powder in it for depth.

Next up: batter. Cake flour & butter for tenderness, sour cream for moistness, eggs for richness, and a mixing method guaranteed to yield a tender cake. Click below for more about that method.

Now, layer everything in the pan: batter, cinnamon swirl, more batter, and of course, the glorious brown sugar cinnamon streusel to finish it off.

You choose the pan size: an 8" or 9" square pan makes a taller cake, or bake in a 9" x 13" pan for a thinner cake. It's totally up to you.

Either way, tall or short, you will still have layers of moist, tender vanilla cake accented by deep cinnamon goodness in the middle and crumbly cinnamon crumbs on top.
