Sour Cream for Yogurt

Can I substitute sour cream in a recipe that calls for yogurt?

Possibly. It depends on the recipe.

Since you can almost always substitute yogurt for sour cream, I imagine the opposite would also be true. But I agree with AndyM. that knowing the recipe - or just the gist of it - would make it easier to give you a definite answer.

Hmmm. . . . baking is the one area where substitutions can be tricky. And since baking isn't my forte, I'll have to bow out & hope someone who's more of a baker can answer your question.

While I can't be sure, I'd say a substitution would work. The reverse sub, yogurt in place of sour cream, is often done to reduce the fat and calories in recipes such as banana bread.

Yes, you can substitute plain yogurt for sour cream in a baking recipe like a quick bread or muffin. They just won't be as rich.
