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.
Meet the Cook: Back almost 30 years ago, when I was an Indiana farmer's daughter and a 4-H'er, this won me champion honors at the county fair - then a blue ribbon at the state fair! To this day, my husband tells me it's the best thing that I make.
