Moist and Delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This is definitely a keeper. Simple to make smells great and is light moist and yummy! I followed the recipe exactly and refrigerated overnight. It made a light moist cake and the topping was not overly sweet. I’ll be making this again. Preparing brunch was so much easier just having to pull this out of the fridge and popping it in the oven! It would be perfect for Christmas morning brunch..
