I accidentally got cream cheese instead of sour cream for WASC. Has anyone ever added cream cheese to a cake mix before??? icon_confused.gif

My sister actually makes my daughters some cupcakes from a book that came out on Oprah. It has recipes in it that hide vegetable so that the children eat it. She makes a chocolate cake that has beets and it asks for Neufatela (sp?) it's like cream cheese.

I have a vanilla cupcake recipe that starts with a box mix but I add both cream cheese AND sour cream to it (along with some vanilla bean scrapings) and it makes the most delicious vanilla cupcake EVER.

It's moist, rich and very delicious!!

I often substitute the oil in a cake mix with cream cheese. It makes a nice moist cake, less "airy" than usual.

I don't think you can do a direct substitute for the sour cream with cream cheese, but you can definitely use cc in a cake recipe. Usually, the sour cream is a substitute for the liquid...the cream cheese is in addition to the liquid....unless, of course, you are making a pound cake.

maybe that will help....

I use 2 oz. of cream cheese in place of the oil in my white cake mix-keep the water and eggs the same. It makes the best cake ever. I've had several people tell me it's the best cake they've ever had.

Buddy Valastro (owner of Carlo's Bakery on TLC's Cake Boss) said in one of the episodes that his secret is he adds cream cheese to his cakes to make them firm and moist. So it must work well.
