If you can get plain yogurt and maybe ad about one half teaspoon of vinegar with it to give it a little more sour taste....Are you making a cake with it? If so, the vinegar in it will add to the cake flavor...Have you ever made red velvet cake? It has vinegar in it and is a great tasting cake...Best to you, Nancy

Sour cream is a naturally fermented cream that actually becomes sour. You can use plain yogurt in recipes instead of sour cream to lower the fat content or if sour cream is not available. Hope this helps!

I think plain yogurt can be substituted in cake recipes for sour cream. I don't really know how to describe sour cream. It is what it is lol. I love it.
