  1. Oooo this does look good! My mum loves lemon cakes. Given limited ability to get ingredients at the moment, I’d be lacking sour cream. Would it work without it, do you think? I love your photos by the way, amazing!  ♥ x

    1. Thank you for your lovely comments.
      Sure, you can substitute homemade buttermilk— 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand for 5 minutes. Another option is, You can also use 1 cup of plain yogurt. I did these substitutes and got same results.

  2. Hey this recipe is looking great..last year in initial lockdown time I was all crazy for baking and apart from the regular Chocolate and vanilla I tried orange and mango cake too. I am not great in baking just a normal one. Orange turned out good mango was average. That time I did thought about lemon cake as I love lemon tea time cakes from some selected bakeries but dropped the idea. Now your recipe is pushing me to make one. I have saved it for my reference. Just a query can we use normal cream instead of sour cream?


    1. Its great to hear that you are trying new flavors. Me too – my latest obsession is strawberry. I tried couple but none tasted or worked out to my satisfaction.
      Regarding the cream – I never used cream as sour cream substitute as I always have homemade yogurt as a backup. So, I am not sure about it.
      Sour cream has 20% fat content and the sour taste and brings that much needed moisture to the cake. I would say the best substitute of sour cream are yogurt(1:1) and cream cheese(1 cup of sour cream can be replaced by 3/4 cup of cream cheese).
