Vegan MoFo Recipe #28: Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I think this might have been the husbands favourite recipe so far. I made a half cake but should have made a full from how long it lasted. The texture was just amazing from the sour cream. Nice and light and fluffy and the flavour punch from the nuts and cinnamon was just great. I’d make this to serve anytime, it is going into rotation asap!
