Sour Cream Coffee Cake-Mini Bundts ---- Ina's Garden

Join us in Ina's Garden

 Tomorrow is Ina's Garden's linky and the theme was selected by Mia who has absolutely the best taste.  She chose Sweet Baked Love.

Baked love is for anyone we love and baked, to me, could be meat loaf or a beautiful cake.  It is what we give out of love.  I stayed with the traditional baked goods and made mini bundts.   If I say so myself,they were delicious.  Sour Cream Coffee Cakes have been part of our lives for many years.  It is the go to cake although I do not have a go to recipe.  This one just might be it.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake  (Adapted - Ina Garten)


11 tablespoons Canola Oil at room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup sour cream
2 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For the streusel:
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons oil
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
For the glaze:
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons real maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 6 mini bundt cakes.

Cream the oil and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment for 4 to 5 minutes, until light. Add the eggs 1 at a time, then add the vanilla and sour cream.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture to the batter until just combined. Finish stirring with a spatula to be sure the batter is completely mixed

For the streusel, place the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and oil in a bowl and pinch together with your fingers until it forms a crumble. Mix in the walnuts, if desired.

Spoon half the batter into the pan and spread it out with a knife. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup streusel. Spoon the rest of the batter in the pan, spread it out, and scatter the remaining streusel on top. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean.

Let cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes. Carefully transfer the cake, streusel side up, onto a serving plate. Whisk the confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup together, adding a few drops of water if necessary, to make the glaze runny. Drizzle as much as you like over the cake with a fork or spoon.
