Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

{print this recipe}

The recipe came from my grandma. My grandparents lived in Hawaii for a few years in the 1960s and this recipe came from a neighbor of theirs while they lived there.  It's been a family favorite every since!  It was my contribution to Christmas breakfast this year.  I've eaten this coffee cake so many times but it was my first time making it.  I was surprised to find out just how easy it is!  Would be perfect for special occasions, brunch, serving to your Sunday School class or PTA group!
