Sour cream substitute?

I am making an Orange Poppyseed Cake today. I do not have any sour cream in the house and the recipe calls for 1 cup. Can I substitute yogurt straight across or do I have to go shopping? Are there any other appropriate substitutes?

Also, it calls for double acting baking powder...don't have that either!!! Should I double the amount? I actually looked for this the other day and asked the clerk in the grocery store...no one had a clue. So unless I want to find a specialty store I think I am SOL on the double acting stuff.

I am really in the mood for this cake, otherwise my lazy nature would have already led me to just give it up! Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

Yes on the sour cream. 1/2C. plain yogurt for each 1/2 C. sour cream.

Baking powder...for 1tsp. double acting baking powder, sub. 1 1/2tsp. regular baking powder.
