Heather’s Cinnamon and Sour Cream Coffee Cake

You know those recipes that your family has been making your whole life? This coffee cake is one of them. It’s always been known in my family as “George’s Coffee Cake” even though I’m 95% certain I’m not related to anyone named George.

When my mama and I sat down to add this recipe to our Drop recipe creator a few weeks ago, she decided that it needed re-christened and named it after herself.

The entire recipe comes together in less than ten minutes. The batter is so thick that you’ll wonder how it bakes up into such a dense, moist cake.

The only potentially time-consuming part of the recipe is chopping pecans. I skip the hassle (and expense of buying them pre-chopped) by smashing them in a mortar and pestle.

Don’t worry about getting them too small, though. They’re so soft that they melt right into the cake.
