AI made a "practice" cake for a friends, husband and he said the cake was too dense and moist. I used a basic boxed chocolate cake extender, flour, sauger, pudding, sour cream. I even used cake flour. I wonder if using yogurt will "lighten up" the cake a bit? I can exclude the pudding to reduce the "moist".

I've never run into this before, I didn't quite know how to respon but I'd like to accommodate his request for hid 50th birthday cake.

I haven't jumped into scratch cakes, the Seattle weather is touchy and I haven't mastered it plus with 2 small children I am limited on playtime.

maybe replace the sour cream with buttermilk?

AThat thought crossed my mind, maybe use plain yogurt or milk instead of the sour cream. I like the buttermilk idea.

Don't add the pudding.
