I realize we’re just days away from officially being in the fall season. I know scores of people who claim fall as their favorite season; they have easily bid adieu to summer. I’m afraid that’s not true for me. I’ve always been and may forever remain a summer gal.
Though I’m never quite ready to trade my beloved flip flops for boots, I’m an unabashed sucker for fall baking. The aroma of cinnamon and spices wafting through the house – I’m good with that part. Very, very good with it.
I adore quick breads, coffee cakes, and basically any sweet carby type goodies that call themselves breakfast. Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese, Moist Pumpkin Scones with Spice Glaze, Easy Pull-Apart Sticky Buns, and Sweet Potato Cinnamon Brown Sugar Muffins are all worthy of being the most important meal of the day 🙂
Looking at those recipes is awakening a serious baking (and eating) craving this very moment.
This Cinnamon Coffee Cake is a perfect kick off for fall. It’s tender, moist, and oh-so-satisfying. Just smelling it baking in the oven is enough to make us sit and stare hungrily into the oven.
The moist interior of this coffee cake is wonderfully offset by the classic streusel that is layered within the cake. The cake is finished off with the streusel topping, which gives is a delicious crisp sweetness that can’t be beat. The sour cream gives this cinnamon coffee cake a tasty tang that combines perfectly with the sweetness.
Whether you’re ecstatic over fall’s arrival or not, you’ll positively fall for this cake.
