I made this tasty, moist cake yesterday & it's a hit! Very scrumptious if you like spice bundt cake. The only thing differently I will do in the future is add a dash of salt to the batter. Highly recommend!

The recipe has not been made using this substitution in our Test Kitchens. It seems like the cake would be just fine and I would suggest using the same amount of sour cream as is listed for the yogurt.

This cake has an excellent buttery taste! However I cooked it in a stonewear bundt pan and even an hour of cooking left it raw in the middle so my recommendation would be to check doneness thoroughly before removing cake from oven
