Jewish Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

Jewish Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This is my mom's recipe. We have it with Christmas breakfast every year.

Jewish Sour Cream Coffee Cake



  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup sliced almonds (or chopped walnuts)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted


  1. Heat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 10" tube pan. (I used a bundt pan instead)

  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix well.

  3. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  4. Add flour mixture and sour cream alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour.

  5. Combine filling ingredients.

  6. Spread half of the batter in the pan, sprinkle with half of the filling, spread remaining batter in pan, and top with remaining filling (reverse for bundt pan, starting with filling instead of batter).

  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

  8. Cool 15 minutes and remove from pan.
