      Did not work for me. Didn't rise much at all.

      Great tasting, loved it! Very dense, which I also like. My cake did not rise much at all, but still very good. I used nonfat greek yogurt instead of sour cream and also reduced the sugar a little.

      I put a glaze on top (mix powder sugar and lemon juice) and that made it extra lemon delicious!!!

      I made these into muffins and were fantastic! The sour cream adds a nice tang to it, and they're very moist. I added a little more lemon juice because DH and I like a more lemony flavour. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
