TIP: Greek or Icelandic yogurt can be substituted for sour cream. Having milk and eggs at room temperature helps batter cook evenly. Can substitute vegetable oil for coconut oil. Can substitute vegan butter for unsalted butter. Certain baking powders are not gluten-free, so be sure to check this to ensure a gluten-free loaf.

    In a small bowl, whisk oil and butter until combined.
