Miss Bonnie’s Sweet Bread

In honor of my blogiversary celebration, I made husband’s favorite: Sweet Bread. When I first started dating my husband, he traveled down to Mobile to have Thanksgiving with his family, and he brought a loaf of Sweet Bread back with him. It was yummy!

My husband’s mom (a.k.a. Miss Bonnie) has been making this recipe for years. The “official” title for this recipe is “Aggie’s Sour Cream Pound Cake,” but my husband calls it Sweet Bread or Nut Bread. And it actually reminds me a lot of Amish Friendship Cake (or bread), which my dad used to make a lot, (exept with this recipe you don’t have a starter, and it doesn’t take weeks to make, which is a really good thing!) Whatever you choose to call it, it is delicious!

Recipe for Miss Bonnie’s Sweet Bread:

2 3/4 cups sugar
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
6 eggs
2 1/2 sticks margarine
1 8 oz cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp flavoring (any kind) **I used vanilla.
1 cup nuts (optional) **I used walnuts.

Directions: Cream margarine and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, beat after each. Add flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix. Add sour cream and flavoring and beat for 2 minutes. Add nuts and fold in till evenly distibuted throughout batter. Pour into large tube pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and bake for one hour and thirty minutes.
