    A lovely recipe - even in the heat of summer! The instructions are precise on cooking and letting it set so don’t scrimp on those. Makes a difference. Passed the husband test too... 😉

    I substituted the sour cream with yogurt and it turned out well. The flavor is delicious and I love that the bread holds moisture pretty well.

    i made it today and it was delicious and amaizing 💖💖💖💖 i made some adjustment and i have some advices i would like to share it with you: 1. sour cream isn't available where i live, so i used a 120 g (1/2 cup) of plain yogurt adding to it 1 tsp of baking soda and it worked amaizingly! 2. i reduced the sugar amount to 1/2 cup since we can't tolerate too much sugar, that also worked just fine! 3. i advice you strongly to reduce the amount of salt used; i used 1/2 tsp per the recipe instruction and it was too much that the bread turned more salty than it should be! to clarify i used a half grounded sea salt. but i advice you to use 1/4 tsp of any kind of salt you want. 4. next time i make it i would add more lemon, i could taste it but it was a bit faint. that's all ! have fun playing and baking.

    I subbed in Greek yogurt for sour cream like Dede said since that was what I had in the fridge. I personally love lemon (I'm a fan of the lemon loaf they have at Starbucks) and if you want something with that real punch of lemon, I'd add in a bit more. I agree with Danielle that it's not too sweet, so I felt like I could eat two slices of it for breakfast, and it definitely feels more like a breakfast food than a dessert one.

    Turned out great. A little fragile when moving it, but moist on the inside.
