Can you taste the sour cream in these types of cakes? Are there any recipes without sour cream that are just as good?
You cannot taste it- just makes it much more moist If you don't like the idea of sour cream, you can sub some yogurt- same principal. I personally use mayonnaise in my chocolate cake and although it sounds gross, it is to die for!!
Thanks, I'll give the sour cream a try then. I have heard of mayonaisse in choc. cake, and I have heard it tastes great!

I love the enhanced recipe! I was really nervous you would be able to taste the sour cream, but you can't. when I make this people think it's a "homemade" cake.
