Sour Cream Lemon Bread Recipe

Sour Cream Lemon Bread Recipe

My family always requests this light, tender bread with a hint of lemon. This loaf is so scrumptious that it complements almost any meal. I serve slices with a creamy lemon spread for an early-morning treat or late-night snack that's simply dreamy. -Barbara Strickler, Syracuse, Indiana
