Vegan Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    Happy Tuesday everybody! I hope everybody had a fantastic weekend. I just celebrated my 20th birthday on Saturday. Today, I decided to go back to some sweets that we all know and love. We are going to be making a sour cream coffee cake today! It is so yummy, you can't even tell that is is vegan. So, there are different ways you can make sour cream vegan. You can do the cashew sour cream, or you can use the recipe for tofu sour cream. Since I am on a HUGE tofu kick, I will be using the tofu sour cream recipe. I overall enjoyed making this recipe. 

    It didn't take much time to make it at all. Just as long as you have the ingredients, and you have the recipe in hand, you will be prepared for anything. Overall, it takes about 20-25 minutes for prep, and about 45 minutes to an hour to bake. I made this when I was still going to the Culinary Institute of Virginia in our Alternative Baking class. It kind of sucked the first time we made it, but we had used store bought vegan sour cream, or I don't think we used sour cream at all. And it was REALLY gross. But, I made it again a little while ago, and I homemade my own vegan sour cream. I was not disappointed the second time. So, in essence, don't forget any portion of the recipe, or it will suck.

    I am going to stress this one more time, because repetition is key: USE SILKEN TOFU FOR THE SOUR CREAM!!!! Extra firm will add chunks to it, and I am almost 100% sure nobody wants chunky vegan sour cream. :) I love coffee cake, so being able to make this was amazing for me..But, I am also a huge coffee person who loves to pair cake with her morning brew, so I could be a bit biased on this one. I hope you all enjoy this weeks recipe, and tell me what y'all think of this recipe!
