Christmas Coffee Cake

This coffee cake recipe was a favorite Christmas breakfast treat growing up. It tastes just like cinnamon rolls. Yummy!


Mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup nuts (I didn't include nuts because of the girls, but I love them)

Place 1/2 of mix in 9 x 13 pan. Cover with topping. Spread remaining 1/2 mix over the top and add the rest of the topping. Bake 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

Hi Kim! I am having friends over for a holiday breakfast and I was just looking at coffee cake recipes! This sounds delicious and easy!! Can I make it the night before or should I try to make it in the morning?

Congrats Emma! I am so glad you are feeling better. You are such a lovely young lady!

Kim, I truly wish I had your energy and your craft room! Just like you, I could really do some damage! HA!

The coffee cake sounds yummy. I am planning on sharing my mom's banana bread recipe soon. It is heaven in a spoon, too!

Much love,
Cindy

Yum! I must admit that I take the easy way out and buy an Arnie's coffee cake for Christmas morning...but maybe I will change things up this year!
Looking forward to seeing your next project!
