Substituting

I have a recipe for Blueberry Pound Cake. It calls for an 8 oz container of low fat yogurt. When I was shopping, I was thinking of sour cream pound cake, and I bought sour cream instead of yogurt. Could I use that in place of the yogurt? It has a similar consistancy.

Yes, you can, the taste will be different but not in a bad way.

I agree. Many recipe that call for yogurt are low-fat/calorie versions of recipes using sour cream.

I also agree. Plain yogurt and sour cream are interchangeable in most cases. Go for it!

Forget the pound cake, Carol, it's good seeing YOU! Hope all is well with you and your Mister.

Oh, yeah, use sour cream. Think of it as higher fat yogurt.

I also use yogurt and sour cream interchangeably.

What little baking I do, I also have subbed sour cream for plain yogurt with great results. And the opposite, with the same good outcome.

Mmmm....Blueberry Pound Cake sounds wonderful either way!

I do think a Taste Panel is what this Blueberry Pound Cake needs.
