Mother’s Day is this weekend, and my kids have already started asking me what I want. I love putting my feet up in the morning and enjoying my cup of coffee and a nice piece of coffee cake on the front porch. There is a nest of baby birds in the palm tree in the front yard. It is so sweet to watch the Mother and Father bird come back and forth to feed them. Needless to say, between the kids and the dogs, my quiet moments on the front porch are few and far between.
I thought I would give the family a push in the right direction. I whipped up this Sour Cream Coffee Cake this evening. It is so easy you won’t believe it, and it tastes unforgettable! It is so moist and flavorful. The smell of cinnamon is intoxicating. If you are looking to surprise someone with a special treat this is it. You may also want to print out the recipe and leave it on the kitchen counter with the ingredients. Hint. Hint.
