Johnny and I were so taken by Natalie's strawberry sour cream loaf when we chose it as BSI winner that we wanted to make it right away!
It worked out perfectly too because the $7.99 two pound tubs of strawberries were on sale and with store card came to $2.99 per tub! In season produce is so much cheaper and tastier! Win-win if you ask me!
I followed Natalie's recipe and instructions verbatim, which can be found here.
I didn't get any pictures of the mixing process, but the batter was absolutely beautiful! It was silken smooth and creamy, I was impressed!
The aroma while it baked was heavenly. Perhaps I made it in too big of a pan (12" loaf pan), but it was very delicate. The texture was almost like a white cake, very moist and light.
In the future I could see experimenting with the fruits, or maybe even adding oats to the batter to bulk it up some. This would also be an excellent choice for a birthday cake! Just bake in a round pan and "frost" with whipped cream!
Just as Natalie had promised, there were little pockets inside where the strawberries melted into yummy nothingness! This is definitely a keeper!
I was tagged by Amy of Please Don't Eat Me! to answer 7 questions about myself. The questions she chose to ask were:
1. What is your favorite article of clothing?
Wow! I have so many clothes, it's hard to narrow it down. I think I'd probably have to settle on some pretty dress that I rarely get a chance to wear.
2. What is your dream vacation?
3. Have you ever danced in the rain?
4. If you could design your own dream house, what would it look like? big and spacious, small and cozy, condo, etc..
I think it would probably have different wings. I like variety and could never live in a loft style apartment, I need to move room to room.
5. If you won the lottery would you quit your job and move to Tahiti?
Nope! (Because I'm not working right now and the thought of living on a tiny little island 9,000 miles from anywhere freaks me out!)
6. If you could only drink one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Non-alcoholic = sweet iced tea
Alcoholic = Singapore Sling OR Amaretto Sour (I can't choose!)
7. What would you name your first born son or daughter?
This changes all the time and most people HATE the baby names I pick out, but right now I like:
Son = Malcolm (Laura knows why!)
Daughter = Sabrina
I'm supposed to tag 7 people and ask them 7 new questions! But I'm a rule-breaker so everybody is tagged to answer one question:
What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?!
