I am making the cake recipe inside. I am wondering if I can sub plain yogurt for the sour cream and get the effect? Thanks as always!

Start with a white cake mix, and add sour cream and almond flavoring to make a quick, moist cake that's ready for your decorating touches.

I haven't tried it, but I'd think it'd work.

As long as it is not fat free it should be fine.

it will probably work. If you have the time, you might put a coffee filter into a sieve and then put the the yogurt in and let it sit over a bowl. Some of the liquid should drain making it thicker like sour cream or Greek yogurt. But if you don't have time or don't want to, just throw it in - it'll be fine and maybe even moister.

Thank you! I just put the cake in the oven so we will see. It is for a bunch of 8 year old boys, so I don't think they will mind either way.

You absolutely can. I have used plain Greek yogurt and it came out beautifully.

I almost always use vanilla yogurt(low fat/Aldi's brand) in place of sour cream in this. Comes out perfect every time!
