This cake turned our great even though I made some changes to fit the ingredients I had on hand. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream since I had left over yogurt that I needed to use up. I also used all brown sugar as I had just run out of white sugar. I omitted the coffee, walnuts, and chocolate chips, and served it without frosting. The texture was wonderful! It was very moist, yet somehow still light and spongy. There's also a good flavor without being too sweet. I will definitely be making again!
