Sour cream cake recipe with step by step pictures. Moist and fluffy cake made with sour cream and taste amazing.
I made a batch of sour cream for my eggless cheesecake recipe, which will be shared in the coming week. I had a cup of sour cream leftover, so i was looking for a recipe to use it. Thought of making a orange pound cake or lemon pound cake using that, but i wanted to feature it as a main ingredient since it add a great ingredient to make the cake soft even it is eggless.
About this Recipe
Sour cream, also known as soured cream, is a dairy product made by fermenting regular cream with lactic acid bacteria. The bacterial culture that is introduced, either intentionally or unintentionally, soured and thickened the cream. Souring refers to the process of producing lactic acid through bacterial fermentation. Crème fraîche is a type of sour cream that has a high fat content and a milder sour flavour. Sour cream adds moisture without thinning the batter like a liquid would. Because sour cream adds moisture without thinning out the batter, the result is a cake with a very tender, fine crumb.
Chocolate Ganache Recipe
The cake was so soft, moist and is a perfect cake to have with a cup of milk, tea or coffee. The cake is not so sweet, it is just perfect. You can add little more sugar if you need it to be sweet.
You can call this cake as a vanilla sponge cake, this sponge cake form the base for all type of birthday cakes. Because they hold the cake well and yet taste spongy and soft.
Ingredients for Eggless Sour Cream Cake
All Purpose Flour:
All-purpose flour can be used for a variety of tasks, including baking, cooking, coating meats and vegetables, and thickening sauces and gravies. To manufacture all-purpose flour, a blend of hard wheat (which has more gluten) and soft wheat is crushed together.
Baking powder is used to increase the volume of baked goods and lighten their texture. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough via an acid–base reaction, which causes bubbles in the wet mixture to expand and thus leaven the mixture.
Because of the fantastic flavour it adds, vanilla essence is used in almost every recipe for baked goods. Vanilla extract is always added to desserts because it adds flavour chemically and also brings out the flavours of other ingredients in the mixture.
