There is nothing like a nice coffeecake on a Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and the paper.
I had so much sour cream left over from earlier in the week that was nearing the expiration date that I decided a nice coffeecake would be in order for us.
Off I went searching for a recipe and found a great one at the King Arthur website.
The recipe turned out very well even with all of my errors. *blush*
This coffeecake is tasty, moist and full of flavor.
Give it a try and enjoy!
