An even richer version of this luscious treat! This smells unbelievable baking in the oven. Prep times does not include standing or cooling time.

  3. Place milk, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, flour, sugar, and salt in blender or food processor and process just until blended, about 1 minute.

This cake cooks for a long time, but it is so simple to make it is worth it. It is not overly sweet, but I would save it for dessert.

This dish feels like a dessert in a fancy restaraunt. I love the texture. Next time, I am going to try leaving out the lemon and replacing it with cinnamon. I think that would be a nice twist. I put ice cream on top instead of cream. Loved it!

Delicious! I made this in a souffle dish and it puffed up nicely to the top of the looked quite impressive. This is a wonderful breakfast dish, especially when you have special guests. Made as written but did not serve with the heavy cream. This recipe is perfect as is but I also like katew's suggestion to add some almond extract. Yum! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.
