Taste of Home's cinnamon coffee cake and Ina Garten's sour cream coffee cake are both good coffee cake recipes featuring cinnamon. Taste of Home's recipe serves more people and features walnuts, while Garten's version is topped with a glaze.
To make Taste of Home's cinnamon coffee cake, cream 1 cup of butter and 2 cups of sugar. Add four eggs, one at a time, and mix the batter well after each egg. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla. In another dish, combine 3 cups of flour and 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating this with 2 cups of sour cream. When the batter is smooth, spoon one-third of the mixture into a greased tube pan. Combine 2 tablespoons of cinnamon with 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 3/4 cups sugar. Sprinkle this mixture over the batter. Repeat this for two more layers, and then bake the cake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 to 65 minutes.
