Sour Cream Poppy Seed Cake
I'm making this right now; & I absolutely love the batter (the sour cream eliminates the 'sweet' taste). I didn't have OJ or poppy seeds to add, so I went w/out those. I did use an 8 oz. container of sour cream-I bought the 'light' by mistake. I also used a package of Duncan Hines Signature Fudge Marble Cake Mix; instead of taking part of the batter to add the chocolate mix to, I added the choc. mix to the whole thing (I know that sounds odd, but then it won't be too chocolatey).

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Thank you, GoofyDebbie, for this recipe. I now use it for a similar recipe handed down to me from my grandmother: it's a German sweetbread. It never came out right because the milk/water was never the right temp. for the yeast. Every time I use your recipe I never have a problem w/ that. I give it 10 stars.
