Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe from Sisters Shopping on a Shoestring

Looking for something delicious to make this weekend or for Christmas?  This Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe is one of the made-from-scratch treats my family likes best for a weekend or holiday breakfast.  It’s not difficult to make, but it tastes so much better than a mix from a box.  You can make it the night before, or have it on the table an hour after you start.  It’s fluffy, moist, and delicious, especially with the cinnamon-brown sugar topping.  Enjoy!
