Help! Left out liquids in cake

I baked a coffee cake and left out 1.5 cups of sour cream! Its baking now. It called for 2.5 cups of floure, 3/4 butter, baking powder, soda, 1 1/4 cups sugar, 4 eggs, vanilla.

Don't want to serve my husband a gross cake and have him tease my baking skills - you think it will be OK or will leaving out all that wet ingrediant kill it?
Thanks

All you can do now is taste test it before you offer it. If it's good but a bit dry, you can warm some cream or milk and serve it that way. If it's bad, destroy the evidence and pretend it didn't happen.

You can brush the cake with a simple syrup as soon as you remove it from the oven - poke holes in it first, then add the simple syrup. This will moisten the cake, but will make it sweeter, so it's a little risky. OR... you could make a trifle.

If it is dry you could make a warm sauce with cream, sugar. Prick a few holes in the cake first. Let it absorb into the hot cake and call it pudding!

I like the idea of the syrup

You could always cut it up and make a "bread" pudding out of it. I like bread pudding made with cake instead of bread!

Ok it's decided. I'm making my first bread pudding okay. Looked online my only issue is the net said cake will turn to mush and the dry bread absorbs liquid. I guess dry cake is the same

I'd just spread the cubed cake in the pan and pour over the custard. Stirring it might turn the cake to mush.

I made bread pudding out of pumpkin bread and it came out great.

I made it and it was sooooo good. I usually don't eat desserts but I couldn't stop as it was on the less sweet side which I prefer...must get it out of house...
