Sour Cream Coffee Cake
|From the Kitchen of Kathleen King, Owner of Tate's|
“My husband ate this cake every weekend for a year before he actually met me. He claims that, now that he knows the baker, he hasn’t seen the cake since! Everyone always loves this coffee cake. It is moist and very rich and can keep for several days. Served warm, this cake is outstanding!” Kathleen King.
