1 9x13-inch pan


Cake Batter:

  • cooking spray

  • 2 cups sourdough starter, at room temperature

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • cup oil

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 scant teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, at room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine sourdough starter, flour, sugar, oil, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and thick. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  3. Mix brown sugar, softened butter, and cinnamon in a bowl until evenly moistened. Sprinkle topping over the cake batter.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, mix melted butter, milk, and vanilla in a bowl with a fork until smooth. Drizzle glaze over the coffee cake while the cake is still hot.

Cook's Note:

Butter flavoring may be substituted for vanilla, if desired.
