About this Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

This coffee cake recipe is very old. I got it from Grandma in the 1970s. And, she got it from her ancestors. I don’t know far how back it goes. It got plenty of ooohhs and aaahhs from family members when Grandma made it.  You will get the same results.  Try Grandma’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake today.
