Sour Cream Coffee Cake
Print Recipe

Gluten-Free Soy-Free Peanut-Free

A fan favorite recipe! Delicious coffee cake, perfect for brunch or entertaining anytime.

Ingredients
    FOR THE FILLING
    • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped to medium pieces
    • ¼ cup granulated sugar
    • ¼ cup light brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • ½ cup currants or raisins, soaked in cup of hot water to plump, then drained (optional)
    FOR THE CAKE BATTER
    FOR VANILLA GLAZE
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons water
    • ¾ teaspoon vanilla
    FOR LEMON OR ORANGE GLAZE
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons softened butter
    • 2 tablespoons orange juice, lemon juice or water (add more water if too thick to pour)
    • pinch of salt
    • zest of 1 orange or lemon
Directions

    Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 10-cup Bundt or 9-inch springform pan.

    Mix together filling ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. To make cake batter, soften butter in the bowl of an electric stand mixer with paddle attachment. Add sugar and mix well. Add eggs one at a time, then vanilla. On low speed, alternately add baking mix and then sour cream until incorporated.

    Spoon half of batter into pan, covering the bottom. Sprinkle half of the filling over batter evenly, repeat with layer of batter, then sprinkle remaining filling evenly over batter. Take a knife and insert straight down into batter moving up and down around the pan in a zig zag motion to marbleize cake. Do not smooth out the batter.

    Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. While warm, run a knife around the edges. When cool remove from pan.

    TO GLAZE THE CAKE: Mix together glaze ingredients until smooth. Add more water if needed for pourable consistency. Pour thin stream of glaze back and forth over cake.

    NOTE: Everyone measures out cups of flour differently. If you find that your results vary from ours, try adjusting the amount of our flours. For example, if your cake falls a little in the middle, thicken the batter by adding more of the baking mix next time. If cake is too dense and heavy, try reducing the amount of baking mix by ½ cup.

My family has been eating my mother in law's sour cream coffee cake every Christmas & Easter morning for over 20 years. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac & was determined to make something that tasted the same ( so my kids wouldn't know the difference but I could eat it too). I was shocked and thrilled at how good this tastes!! No one could tell the difference, and it seems like you always can ALWAYS tell when things are gluten free. I actually think its even better than the original because it makes a little more than my original recipe, and goes a little farther! For the filling I just used 1/2 C brown sugar & 1tsp cinnamon, and I topped it with 1/2 C white sugar and 1tsp cinnamon, the way she used to. This will now be my go to recipe for morning meetings as well. Thank you!!

I've made this a few times, and this is the first time it's been successful. Like another commenter, the first few times I made it it sank and was a mess, but tasted good so I kept trying. I'm at HIGH ALTITUDE, so using all Baking & Pancake mix does not work. Instead, I use 1 cup Pancake mix and 1 cup of Pamela's Artisan Flour Mix and that does the trick. Once I figured that out, I realized that mixing it in the order the recipe indicates is vital as well. I think I prefer it without the glaze.

This recipe is the bomb. It tastes so good. I made it without the raisins. I had made gf cinnamon rolls from scratch a few weeks before, and it took 4 times longer and did not taste half as good. This recipe had the same cinnamon flavor I wanted while also tasting better and taking less time and effort. The texture was good and the cake did not fall apart. I will definitely be making this again. My family all loved this. I left the glaze off, and the cake was still moist and not too dry. Definitely recommend.

I made this cake in a bundt pan omitting the pecans/ raisins which my eight year old doesn't like. It was super moist, absolutely delicious and outstanding. A great recipe. Thanks for your prompt response to my question.

Can I simply omit the pecans/walnuts and raisins from the filling? Or would it affect the texture of the cake? Thanks.

    • Hi Iram, You could certainly make this without the nuts and raisins. The nuts do provide a nice texture and taste but the cake will still be delicious without them.

I've tried making this twice (using a bundt pan), and both times it has completely sunk into itself. When I try to take it out of the pan, it just falls apart. Followed the directions exactly. Kind of an expensive recipe.

    • I've always made it in a round pan, not a bundt, because that way the crumble on top still shows andnits a quick flip out and back onto a plate. I wonder if it isn't fully cooking in the middle for you.

    • Kathy, the first time I baked this, it came out perfectly. Really, the most glorious thing I'd ever done with a bundt pan. Second and third times, it was a disaster, just as you describe. Mine cratered while it was still midway though cooking. I figured next time I'd use a 7x11 baking pan and hope for the best.

This recipe was amazing. The flavor was so good. I accidentally undercooked the center of the cake, but it still tasted great! A few weeks ago, I had tried a GF cinnamon roll recipe that required 5x as much work and tasted alright. This recipe was so much simpler and had much better taste. I didn't add the glaze. It was moist and soft without it, but I look forward to trying that the next time I make it, which will be very soon.
Definitely recommend!!

If I make this coffee cake the day before, does it have to be refrigerated?

    • Hi Melody, You could just wrap it air-tight.
