Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

for serving (optional):

  • fresh berries or any fruit
  • whipped cream

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Spray 4 mini loaf pans (or one regular size loaf pan) with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, and mix to combine. Add the vanilla and almond extract and mix to combine. Mix in the baking powder and salt. With the mixer running on low speed, add half of the flour, followed by the sour cream, and then the remaining flour, and mix until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan(s) and smooth the top.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes for mini loaves or 50-60 minutes for a full size loaf, or until the loaf is lightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the top comes out clean. Remove and let cool. Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream, if desired.
