      I made these into cupcakes for a baby shower. This turned out moist & flavorful. The batter is thick, as I assumed it would be, but beating it the full amount of time makes it quite smooth. The cupcakes baked up in 20 minutes exactly. Thanks :)

      I bet this is great. Every baked recipe I've ever tried with sour cream seems to be lighter than any other version. I find it to be a perfect ingredient to bake with.

      I don't know what i was expecting, but this cake just didn't work out for me. It was dry, vaguely sour tasting (probably from the sour cream) and we were disappointed. I think i will just go back to preparing the white cake mix as directed on the box.
