To make this tender coffee cake, Bernice Knutson of Soldier, Iowa dips balls of dough into cinnamon and sugar, then places them in a fluted tube pan. "I pour chopped walnuts in the pan first. They add a nice crunch," she notes.
I enjoy making this lovely coffee cake for anniversaries, Valentine's Day and other special occasions. I found the recipe more than 30 years ago, and I've been making it ever since. The delicious treat is a hit with family and friends.
