Orange Cinnamon Coffee Cake



¾ stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
¾ cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large orange, zested
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup sour cream
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 large pinch kosher salt


¼ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9-inch round baking dish (or a baking dish of equal proportions) and set aside.

2. In a mixer cream the butter and sugar for the cake until light and fluffy. About 4 minutes. Then, add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Next, add the vanilla extract and orange zest and mix well. Finally, beat in the sour cream until smooth.

3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and slowly mix it into the batter on low speed until just incorporated and the batter is smooth.

4. Pour the batter into the baking dish and spread it evenly. Then, make the streusel.

5. To make the streusel mix together the sugars and cinnamon in a small bowl. Then stir in the melted butter and flour. Drop the streusel in large chunks on top of the cake.

6. Bake the cake for about 40 to 45 minutes, or until it is lightly browned and pulling away from the sides and a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool. Serve!
