Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This recipe is a family favorite for holidays and birthdays – especially my dad’s birthday. This recipe was passed down from my grandma to my mom, and I made it for my mom’s birthday this weekend. I even bought my own bundt pan – eivai keki mori!  One lesson learned – don’t try to go all healthy on a non-inherently healthy thing like cake. (I used whole wheat flour, and it didn’t turn out the same.)
