Substitute cottage cheese for sour cream?

sonia darrow | Apr 1, 2010 11:50 AM

I want to make banana bread. I have a recipe I like but it calls for 1/2 cup of sour cream. I have neither sour cream nor yogurt in the house. I do have some cottage cheese, cream cheese, and milk.


I know cottage cheese's lumpiness would obviously change the texture of the recipe, but... does anyone think it would it be an ill-advised substitution? Maybe I'll try mixing milk and cream cheese to a sour-cream-like consistency. Or blending the cottage cheese till there are no lumps.
