I'm about to make some banana bread and pulled my sour cream out of the fridge and it's frozen (my 3 yo likes to change the coldness setting on me). Is it still ok to use when it thaws or do I have to throw it out? Thanks for any help.

It is ok to use it - I freeze it all the time. You may just have to drain water off the top.

Yeah, frozen/thawed sour cream is perfectly fine for cooking and baking but the texture will be different if you plan to serve it as is, like on a baked potato or something. As sugarandstuff said, you might have to drain it or stir it up really well but it should be good for banana bread. icon_smile.gif

That's good to know. So I can stock up on it when it's on sale and freeze it and it will still be good for baking?

Sorry to jump in but what about cream cheese can it be froze if using it for frosting recipe?

I am also happy to hear that sour cream can be froze, I was worried that it would ruin before I could use it. I accidentally bought to much for a cake.
