    I wanted a change from my old raisin bread recipe, plus I had sour cream that I wanted to use up so I was delighted to find this recipe. All I got to say is "Wonderful!" This bread isn't like your typical bread though...it came out moist sort of like a cake but it is so good! I added in 1/2 cup extra raisins to the batter cause I love raisins. I only made this bread last night and half of it is gone already! (That's a lot considering it's just me and my dad eating!) It's really good with a glass of cold vanilla milk. I'll definitely be using this recipe in the future. Thanks for posting.

    This sweet bread is so good. I made 1/2 the recipe and it made two small loaves. Next time I will make the whole recipe into 4 small loaves, so I can freeze some for later.This tasty tea bread is light, fluffy, tender and oh so full of flavor. I used sultana and golden raisins, what a treat. I will certainly be making this again. Thanks for sharing ElaineAnn.
