Outstanding coffee cake! I made this last week for my Sunday morning group and they insisted I make it again this morning - it was even commented that this is the best baking I've ever brought - which is saying alot! The first time I made it I substituted vanilla yogurt for the sour cream, which worked out very well. I have to note that the smell while this is baking is absolutely divine! Thanks, swissms, for a new favourite! Made for Sweet Traditions.
