I made this yesterday and was about to post the recipe then found it was already up. The recipe I have gives the cooking time as 90 minutes, but my loaf was done in 80. It was quite brown around the 50 minute mark, so I covered it with foil for the rest of the cooking time. Pecans or walnuts were suggested, and I used pecans. A half cup of maraschino cherries is said to be a nice addition. A delicious, moist loaf I plan to make again, so it's pleasing to know the recipe is here where I can easily find it. Thanks, MilanzMom. :)

A really moist batter bread indeed! The addition of the sour cream gives it a lovely underlying tang! I must confess, I had no walnuts so I substituted some sliced almonds and it was superb!I'll be saving this one for sure! Thanks for posting this recipe!
