Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This is a Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe we have been making forever. I bought a big container of sour cream and need to use it up so I reached for my tried and true favorite recipe. This recipe comes from my mom. I’ll post the picture later when it comes out of the oven. This keeps really well and is very moist.
