The ingredients list of this recipe is exactly the same as one of my favorite recipes. HOWEVER, in my recipe, the 1/2 c butter, 3/4 c sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 2 eggs are mixed together. In a separate bowl, the 2 c flour, 1 tsp soda, and 1 tsp baking power are mixed together (dry ingredients). Then, instead of the 1 cup sour cream being added to the pumpkin mixture, it is instead added alternately with the dry mix to the butter mix. In other words, appr 1/3 of dry ingredients added to the butter mix...then add 1/3 of the sour cream. Keep adding dry mix and sour cream alternately until it's all incorporated into the butter mix. The pumpkin layer only consists of 1 3/4 to 2 c pumpkin, 1 egg, 1/3 c sugar, and 1 tsp spice. Also, my recipe calls for a 325 degree oven, for 50-60 minutes. I'm sorry, but I can't see how the batter can work without the sour cream being added to it.
