This bread ROCKS! Now, can I share with you my first attempt at this recipe? Before making a new recipe, I try to make sure I have all ingredients. (I don't like to stray the first time.) I didn't check here because I was SURE we had everything. But as soon as I started, I realized we didn't have enough butter. I substituted a container of apple sauce we normally throw in my kids' lunch (abt 1/4 c.) for most of the butter. When opened the sour cream container in the fridge, I saw that my wife had used most of it in some guacamole she made a couple nights ago. What was left had goops of avacado in it because she stirred the guac and then double-dipped with the same spoon to get more sour cream. I substituted vanilla flavored yogurt. That also meant I didn't have to add vanilla, but probably O.D.'d the sugar content. Moreover, I halved the recipe. I forgot that fact when I added cinnamon, baking soda and salt -- another O.D. Finally, when I went to add nuts, I couldn't find walnuts. They were apparently eaten without being added to the last grocery list for replacement. I added pecans instead. It still turned out great. None of these hassles were big problem, but I spent probably an extra half-hour in preparation time looking for the ingredients in the fridge/pantry.
