THE INGREDIENTS

We all commented on how easy this SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE is to make. Follow Judy’s straightforward instructions to the letter and you’ll have stellar results.

Make sure the butter and eggs are at room temperature for best results. Using soft butter ensures the sugar almost melts into it when you beat them together, and we find using room temperature eggs makes for a fluffier batter.

SOUR CREAM AND TOPPING

We made the cake once just to test out the recipe, then again with a few adjustments, namely using an organic sour cream from a local dairy in Prince Edward County. Upon tasting it, we instantly understood that the recipe is all about the sour cream. Oh wait, it’s also about chocolate!

A coffee cake with chocolate needs to really deliver on that cocoa flavour. For best results, we suggest using premium quality chocolate along with the sour cream. Choosing a higher quality takes the flavour off the charts.

Judy mentioned that the topping can be tweaked to accommodate people’s taste; she has made it without the coconut, with less cinnamon, and so on. On the second attempt, we doubled the quantity of topping and loved it.
