This recipe brings fond memories of a favorite aunt who was a terrific cook. (My cousin and I used to say the only thing we wanted when Aunt Birdie passed away was her recipe box!) The recipe works equally well as a Bundt cake or as a 9" x 13" cake. This is the only sour cream coffee cake recipe I’ve ever seen that starts with a cake mix (rather than from scratch) which makes it quicker and easier. (It’s also one you can easily reduce calories, carbs and fat. Just start with a Reduced Sugar Cake box mix, sub light sour cream for regular; and sub half the brown sugar with a sugar baking substitute such as Splenda. The 9" x 13" cake in photos was prepared this way and everyone said they couldn’t even tell it was a reduced version.) This recipe is certainly good on the first day made, but it mellows in flavor a day or two later, and freezes well too. Aunt Birdie’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake has been a consistent “ringer” whenever I serve it and I think you’ll have the same response.
