Today’s tried and true is another fantastic recipe from Ina Garten – Sour Cream Coffee Cake! 

Ina Garten’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake – Impress family and friends with this easy to make, super moist, absolutely delicious coffee cake! Filled with streusel in the middle of the cake and on top, then finished with a maple glaze drizzle…it’s coffee cake perfection. 

This is another recipe my sister and I made during my visit to see her in Alaska. This is her go-to coffee cake recipe, perfect for those cold Alaskan winter mornings. There is nothing better than a slice of this cake, a good cup of coffee, sitting next to a roaring fire catching up with my sister.

The sour cream in the cake is what makes it super moist.

This cake is best served with your favorite cup of Joe or tea.
