I googled "sour cream cake" to try to find a recipe that isn't for a bundt pan but no luck. Does anybody here have one?

I want a less-sweet cake for my daughter's birthday cake and thought sour cream cake would be good. I think a pound cake would be too heavy for my Dutch guests who are used to super light, fluffy (tasteless) cakes with super light whipped cream (tasteless) as icing.

Or if you don't have a sour cream cake recipe but have a non-sweet-but-still-light-and-fluffy-but-can-withstand-fondant cake they'd like to recommend, I'm all ears.

I plan on filling the cake with cinnamon cream cheese, frost with buttercream and cover in fondant (store bought, not homemade)

I would just bake the recipe in a regular pan. I'm thinking it would be okay.

Slyvia Weinstock's Classic yellow cake uses sour cream. It's a real good cake.

I use kakeladi's "original" WASC recipe and it has sour cream in it.
1 Box White Cake Mix
1 cup all purpose flour
dash of salt (I never add salt)
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 cup water
3 eggs or 4 egg whites
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients together with whisk. Put eggs, sour cream, water & vanilla in mixing bowl and add half the dry ingredients. Mix until blended.
Add rest of dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes.

Bake at 325 degrees until done. This is enough batter for four 6" pans, two 8" pans or one 12" pan.

I add 1/2 cup half and half and 1/2 cup of water inplace of the 1 cup of water. For white chocolate cake: add 6 ounces Baker's white chocolate, melted and cooled to the batter. This makes a really moist cake.

The Cake Bible has one. It is not too sweet either. Sorry I don't remember the exact name, possibly Sour Cream White Cake.

Here's a link to Sylvia Weinstocks Classic yellow cake recipe if you want to check it out. I've not made the recipe myself but have a cake buddy that loves it.
