I know my blog posts are getting farther apart these days but please hang in there. I haven’t forgot you!
This weekend I was looking at coffee cakes lined up on a shelf at my local grocery store and I was so tempted to buy one to satisfy my never-ending sweet tooth. But I knew better. I knew a store-bought coffee cake wasn’t going to stand up to a moist, tender crumb, cinnamon coffee cake that I could produce in my very own kitchen. I was certain that buying one would be a waste of my money and only yield disappointment. Instead, I dug out my mixing bowl and did the right thing, I made my own from scratch. And let me tell you, no disappointments here!
This cake is so simple to make. And you all know how simple I like to keep my baking. One bowl recipes suite me just fine. The order of the ingredients is exactly how I added them to the one bowl I used to make this cake. Also, I mixed by hand; not electric mixer. So go ahead, give this recipe a try.
Cinnamon Coffee Cake
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 7×11 glass baking pan using non-stick cooking spray.
Put all of the ingredients (except the filling/topping ingredients) in a large bowl and mix by hand until everything is combined. This batter will be stiff. Mix the filling/topping ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside.
Pour 3/4 the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Add remaining batter on top, and swirl a butter knife through the mixture several times. Top with remaining cinnamon and sugar filling/topping and bake for 25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
I bet this cake would be delicious with a raspberry filling too. What do you think?

One bowl? Cinnamon? I’m in! Pinning!
I love coffee cakes and I love cinnamon. Definitely a cake up my street. Looks fab!
I said just yesterday that I’d love to make a coffee cake with cinnamon. My father-in-law had surgery today and he’s a huge sweet eater. I’m going to make this for him. He’ll love it (and so will I)
I hope you are doing well!! Your coffee cake looks devine, and oh so moist! Yum, Hugs, Terra
That looks divine!
It looks like it took lots of time to put together! I have been in stores and even some bakeries and wanted to get the quick fix dessert but decided against it. Not all the time, but most. This is going to be so good with a cup of tea!
So delicious- I must try it!
