Ingredients

For the topping

For the cake

For the glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

Make the topping

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick spray and lightly dust with flour. Tap out any excess flour. Place a round piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan and spray the lightly with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. It should look like wet sand. Set aside.

Make the cake

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix until well combined. Mix in the sour cream and vanilla.
  • In a separate medium bowl, add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk to combine. Mix half the flour mixture into the butter mixture, followed by the buttermilk, and the remaining flour mixture. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly to the edges. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter. 
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Begin checking for doneness at about 20 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the outer edge to loosen the cake from the pan. Remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.

Make the glaze

  • Combine all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over the top of cooled coffee cake.
