Cake Project cake #4; The Barefoot Contessa's Sour Cream Coffee Cake. This is the third cake I attempted to make today, as Mosers was out of Mace for one, and I didn't have enough cake flour for the 2nd. What I didn't know until too late was THIS recipe also wanted cake flour! So I had to use… MORE
