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.

I made this cake just as the instructions say and it was great! It is a very dense cake, almost like a pound cake, but extremely moist. This will be my new go-to white cake recipe.

This cake was just as beautiful as it was delicious! Easy and excellent recipe! However, if
you are covering it with fondant, I would recommend using a more dense cake recipe. Still a terrific recipe!

I am not sure if I did something wrong or what. I made cupcakes and ended up with 18. I found they turned out very dry . I am not sure if I over baked them or what. I was very disappointed.

I don't typically use a cake mix, but was in a hurry to get a white cake made to use for a frozen ice cream cake. I thought it turned out great!!! I layered ice cream that I had previously formed to the same size pan that i baked the cake in. Put fudge topping on the cake before topping with ice cream. Covered the whole layer cake with cool whip and then put chopped heath bars on top. I did that so the wrap wouldn't stick to the cool whip. The cake didn't freeze too hard. It had great texture and I used this recipe again even when I had more time.
