Cinnamon Streusel:

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup butter melted


1/2 cup butter room temperature
1 cup of sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yoghurt

How to make Cinnamon Sour Cream Coffee Cake

To make the Cinnamon Streusel:

Step 1: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter. Using a fork, mix until clumps are formed.

To make the Cake:

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: With butter, grease a9 x 9-inch pan.

Step 3: Add the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk until incorporated.

Step 4: Place the butter with sugar in a large mixing bowl. Cream for about 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Step 5: Add in the eggs followed by the vanilla. Mixing well and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed before adding in the flour mixture.

Step 6: Then, add in the sour cream or Greek yoghurt. Mix until everything is combined.

Step 7: Add half of the cake batter in the prepared pan. Spread with an offset spatula to cover the bottom.

Step 8: Evenly sprinkle half of the cinnamon streusel over the cake batter.

Step 9: Place the rest of the batter over and spread to cover the previous layer.

Step 10: Sprinkle the top with the rest of the cinnamon streusels.

Step 11: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until lightly browned. Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick in the centre. When it comes out clean the cake is done.

Step 12: Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool completely before serving.


You can use plain yoghurt as it has less fat and calories.
