Defrost it overnight in the wrapping. -------------------------------------- Julia Ann and cookbookinabox® in partnership with Netta Belle’s Choice® brings you great recipes for your cooking experience. ©2007-2018 Netta Belle’s Choice® The Art of Gourmet Cookery® cookbookinabox® “Reg.

Many coffee cakes are made with a yeast batter.  The Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake uses baking powder and baking soda as the leavening agents.  It is an easy and quick ‘from scratch’ cake to make.  What is even better, the  coffee cake can be make a week ahead, wrap well and freeze.  Defrost in the wrapping overnight and warm for breakfast.

I have been leafing through my older cookbooks for old recipes I have used.  The Sour Cream Coffee Cake was first published in The Best of Food & Wine 1990 as an exclusive gift edition.  I made moderate adaptions by making a strudel instead of adding walnuts and chocolate.
