Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Serves 8

This recipe is a delightful way to start your morning. You can prepare all of the batter and topping mixtures at home and place them in Zip-loc bags for your outing.

Cream shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs individually, beating after each on is added.

Add baking soda and baking powder.

Alternate the sour cream and flour to the mixture, blending after each addition.

Cream the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Add nuts and mix well.

Spread 1/2 of the batter in the bottom of a preheated 12" Dutch oven.

Sprinkle 1/2 of the topping mixture over the batter.

Cover with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining topping.

Cover with lid and bake.

CHARCOAL HINTS: Use 8 briquettes underneath and 14 on the lid.
