Sour Cream Raspberry Swirl Loaf

I found this gem from Cooking Light and it is absolutely delicious! The jam and nut layer compliments the loaf beautifully (I have used strawberry jam, but I presume you could use any jam flavour). According to personal preferences, I reduce the sugar to about 1/2 cup and use an extra 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla in the batter. I have made this in mini loaf tins and baked for 30 min. This cake freezes well for up to 2 months. I hope you enjoy!

    I made this per the recipe except for using strawberry jam instead of the raspberry. It came out very good however everyone agreed that they would have preferred it without the nuts even more. (3)

    I wont give this a star rating because i changed it so much, but the outcome I had was great! I omitted the nuts, used peach jam, omitting the icing, and used mashed banana and 1 tbsp margarine for the butter. Delicious!

    I made this in my 9x5 loaf pan and baked it for about 48 minutes. It does not taste like a light dessert at all. I did everything as instructed except I replaced the nuts with slivered almonds because that is what I have in the pantry right now. I can't wait to try this with blueberry jam.
