This Tuesday tweak is brought to you courtesy of Lauren, a longtime reader and commenter who reminded me of this recipe from the early and decidedly unpretty days of the blog.  You don’t have to twist my arm to get me to make something with 1) fresh berries, 2) a lemony crumb topping, and 3) a tender sour cream cake.

Coffee cakes are so lovely to me.  I love the simplicity of using just one or two bowls and there being no need to break out the mixer.  Simplicity is just what we have needed of late, with the kids currently riding a seemingly endless stream of various childhood illnesses (thanks, daycare!)  No fuss, no frills, but still delicious and comforting.  A piece savored during blessed nap time when the house was yes! finally quiet.  Yes, just what we needed.
