Sour Cream Raspberry Swirl Loaf

“A delightful sweet loaf with raspberry swirl.  The topping is optional but scrumptious!  I find that the loaf is super sweet without the topping but because the loaf doesn’t last more than a day in my home . . . why add more sugar?  Either way, you’ll have raving fans (if you don’t eat it all first!).”
