Awesome sour cream coffee cake with brown sugar crumble topping. From the White Gull in in Fish Creek, Door County, Wisconsin, where they serve it in great big pieces. Use fresh or frozen fruit - fresh is better!

This is a very good coffeecake. This time I used frozen cherries and chopped walnuts. I did have a bit of trouble working with the dough but well worth the bit of trouble. Used almost 1 1/4 cup of sour cream and that worked well. Thank you Messy44, cant wait to try this with blueberries. Made and reviewed for PAC 2007.
