I did make some changes - I love almond, but I was making this as cupcakes for a group of 1, 2, and 4 year olds, so I left out the almond extract and doubled the vanilla. I didn't have enough sour cream and used about 2.5 oz of softened cream cheese to make up the difference and get to 1 cup. Also, I added about 1 cup of melted semisweet chocolate to 3 cups of the batter, and spooned some of each batter into the liners to make "half and halfs." I got 24 generously filled cupcakes and one 8" round cake. I remember hoping that they were worth all the effort. Wow - they are AMAZING. I am definitely a frosting fan, but I could fully enjoy this cake with nothing on it at all. It's perfectly sweet, very moist, somehow dense and light at the same time - and the flavor is wonderful. This recipe is definitely in my "go-to" collection now. Absolutely yummy.
