Just replace the yoghurt with sour cream. They are both cultured milk products - it'll be fine.You may need a little extra milk for mixing if its a bit dry though.

I love my carrot cake with sour cream - makes it so moist. The recipe is on this post: - don't be put off by the title, in this instance I made it into bite-sized cakes and just called it diet cake because the serving size was limited, but it makes a great full-sized cake. Gardie is right, though, if you were planning to make something specific it should work anyway with the sour cream.

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup butter, softened

Sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add to chocolate mixture, alternating with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour. Beat after every addition until blended.
Gradually add 1 cup of hot water in a steady stream at low until blended.
the batter is going to look extremely thin and you might think you've messed up, but it's going to be perfect :)
Pour batter into paper lined cake pans.
Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes cakes.
Place baked cakes on cooling rack for 15 minutes before removing from pan to completely cool

I can vouch that this is a gorgeous cake! I get so many comments on it whenever I make it :)I also add lemon juice to it to make it more lemony :)

lil_angel_kel....Maybe pour lemon juice over it while it's still hot from the oven??

lil_angel_kel, Dec 2, 8:23am
Oooh that would be good too! :)I usually put the juice of 1 lemon and then a little bit extra in, and its a perfect amount.Then I sprinkle icing sugar over the top - so easy to make, and so tasty! :)
