Dairyland Review:Sour Cream Banana Bread.Great As a Gift!

Do you want a quick holiday treat to give as a gift?Well how about a delicious and quick to make banana bread.Its so easy that you can make it to freeze until the big day or bake it before Christmas.Its definitely a great gift and whoever you give it to will certainly appreciate the work you have put into it.

This kind of quick bread is also good on the budget and easily adaptable.Meaning you can remove and even put additions to the bread.If you want chocolate chips, nuts, fruit etc in this banana bread then go for it.For me, I kept it pretty simple with the ingredients and only cut out the nuts.The direction were easy to follow and the ingredients were simple as well.The recipe in itself gets an A+ from me and definitely recommend it.

Now for the Dairyland ingredients that were used in this recipe such as the European Style butter and regular sour cream.They definitely delivered in this recipe because they are the fat content in the banana bread that help create the bind and texture of the overall treat.The butter created a rich flavor and brought moisture to the bread.Then the sour cream as an add bonus helped even more with the moisture and created a very tender banana bread.Plus you can't even detect the flavor of the sour cream.So the products were very important towards this recipe and wouldn't be the same without them.A+ Dairyland!

Now for the final order, the overall flavor and texture of the banana bread.Well lets just say, I loved it.It was wonderfully moist and tender with a great crunchy exterior.It also had a wonderful aroma with a rich banana flavor.It was so good that you might have a hard time giving it away as a gift.So I  definitely advise to make more then just one so you can have a treat as well. It was so good that I have to give this banana bread two thumbs up across the board and I say try it out yourself you won't be disappointed!
