Is there a modified cake mix recipe that adds sour cream to cake mix? Or a chocolate cupcake recipe using dutch cocoa and sour cream?

I made a similiar recipe for a Guiness stout cake and it was delicious, and I want to re-create it without the Guinness (my mom won't like the slight hint of beer).

I posted this question under the recipe forum, but without many hits, so I hope it will get more exposure here.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Those sound good! But anyone else with recipes, please post as well. I'm not that good at making up recipes.

As was said, use my *original* WASC recipe with a chocolate cake mix *&* use the almond flavoring and you will have the best cake evericon_smile.gif
For the flavoring use 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring and 1/4 tsp almond.......YYUUUMMMMM")
