• Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    This cake can be made with numerous different fillings. I've tried it with Whole Cranberry Sauce (which is absolutely delicious), fig preserves, peach jam, date & nut filling and homemade strawberry jam. Experiment with your favorite jam, but make sure you try the Cranberry Sauce, it is delicious.

    In a mixing bowl beat the following together:

    * 2 eggs
    * 1 c. sugar
    * 1 stick melted butter
    * 1 c. sour cream
    * 1 tsp. Almond Extract

    Beat until fluffy.


    * 2 c. flour
    * 1 1/2 tsp salt
    * 1 tsp Baking Soda

    Spray or grease a bundt pan, preheat oven to 350F

    Open a can of Whole Berry cranberry Sauce & cut into thin layers, or use about 1 1/2 c. of your favorite filling.

    Spoon your filling (whatever you choose, in this photo I am using home-canned Fig Preserves. Put a layer of batter, a layer of filling, a layer of batter, a layer of filling, repeat. Make sure the last layer is batter.

    Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Place on a cooling rack for 5 minutes. Then place a plate over the top of the pan (careful, it will still be hot!) and invert.

    Allow it to rest on the plate for a few minutes.

    In a small bowl combine

    * 1 1/2 c. Confectioners Sugar
    * 1 tsp Almond Extract
    * 2-4 T. Hot Water

    Mix to create a nice glaze and then add 1/2 chopped walnuts. Pour over the top of the cake

    Liss Notes on Variations:

    For variety you can make a date filling using 1 c. chopped dates, 1/3 c. orange juice and 1/4 c. chopped walnuts. Bring the dates and orange juice to a simmer over low heat until it makes a nice sauce. Cool and use in place of the cranberry sauce.

    This is very Very yummy during the holidays and Never lasts long no matter what kind of filling I use.
