I use Greek yogurt. Maybe that makes a difference. Who knows! So many things can change the chemical balance of a cake. They really are finicky.

Good idea, it has less liquid. I've never tried it as a sub before, but that's great!

This cake sounds so good! Thinking about trying it out. Do you frost the cake or leave it without icing?

Thanks!! The taste and texture is so similar to sour cream I sometimes use it as a healthier option for things like tacos and potatoes.

Frost it unless you make it like a bundt and make a glaze for it. I would do something light for the frosting though. Just vanilla or cream cheese. Maybe a pineapple frosting. Mmmm.

this recipe calls for a box mix.. Was this recipe intended for the 18.5 oz. , the old box size? That extra ounces of mix can make a difference too. just a thought

I had this same question: what size box mix? The old or the new weight? Thanks!

I haven't had any problems with the new box size and the wasc recipes. But I do use a heaping cup of flour instead of a level one, don't know if it makes a difference or not. I saw a post on the gourmet thread that some buy extra mixes and weigh in the extra ounces. Then they store the leftover dry mix until the next time.
