How to make it

  • Make the coffee-cake topping: Combine 1/2 cup flour, coconut, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Toss in melted butter and set aside.
  • Make the batter: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-inch round springform pan with a little of the softened butter and set aside. Combine the remaining flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • Beat the egg yolks, remaining brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla using an electric mixer set on high speed until the mixture is thick and pale yellow -- about 2 minutes. Mix in the remaining butter and the sour cream. Reduce mixer speed to low, add flour mixture, and mix.
  • Bake the cake: Pour batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle with topping, and bake on the middle rack of the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean -- 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Release the cake from the pan. Serve warm.
