Today is Jennie’s birthday! We make a lot of decadent cakes for this blog and for our friends, so Jennie and I have an unwritten rule that we keep things a little simpler on our own birthdays.
This year, Jennie requested a particular kind of coffee cake made with sour cream to keep it moist and rich. Lo and behold, our newest King Arthur cookbook had the perfect recipe!
Few people love coffee cake as much as Jennie, and I really can’t believe it took her this many years to choose it as her birthday treat. When we celebrated at a local Los Angeles brewery, this simple cake was a hit with both the birthday girl and our friends.
