Moist and Flavorful Coffee Cake

A lot of the coffee cakes that I’ve eaten homemade or store bought has really disappointed me.  I’m always looking for a very flavorful taste without an overpowering amount of cinnamon that ends up making the cake dry.  I always add sour cream to my cakes and I’m so glad that I added it to this one!  It really helped make this cake super moist and the amount of spices I put in this sour cream coffee cake are well balanced and super flavorful!

Selecting the Right Baking Pan

For this cake, I used my 11″ x 15″ inch baking pan.  The approximate bake time to make the coffee cake in this pan is about 45 minutes give or take.  Using this pan easily gets you 30 slices of coffee cake.  It’s always best to check progress using a toothpick entered into the center of the cake.

You can always use a 9″ x 13″ inch baking pan for this coffee cake as well.  The bake time using this pan will go about by about 10 minutes give or take.  Using this pan will result in fewer slices but they will be thicker slices.

TIP: Use parchment paper to line the baking pan.  It will allow the coffee cake to come out of the baking pan a lot easier and prevents any sticking!
