Light Sour Cream Coffee Cake

sure, the serving size on the cake is a little small, but it satisfies, especially if you eat a lot of apples with it!

Light Sour Cream Coffee Cake
(from Taste of Home magazine)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 t. vanilla


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. flour
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients.  In another bowl, combine the eggs, sour cream, yogurt, butter, and vanilla.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

In a small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients.  Spoon half the batter into a 13x9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with half the streusel.  Top with the remaining batter and streusel.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Place pan on wire rack to cool.  Makes 20 servings, each serving has 210 calories and 7 grams fat.  

This cake was awesome!  And it's "light" so it is healthier, right?  The sour cream added a nice moistness and tang to this cake.  It is one we'd definitely make again, in fact, Anika is 9 and she did most of the work on this cake.
