Welcome to DC. Someone will come along with an answer to your question. But I would say yes. Although expect it to be grainy. The ricotta will give you a sweet taste instead of a sour taste.

Welcome to Discuss Cooking

Please post your recipe. The answer depends on which leavening agent is used. If it's baking soda, it needs an acidic ingredient like sour cream in order to rise.

Yogurt is more commonly used instead of sour cream.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
