Substitute for creme fraiche? - Food52

Substitute for creme fraiche?

My fave @joannachang uses creme fraiche in so many recipes...I have sour cream, heavy cream, cream cheese.
Any ideas and measurements really appreciated.

Another substitute, if you have it, is full fat yogurt (10% or 11% fat).

Hi Judy! You could swap in an equal amount of sour cream for creme fraiche, though it’ll be a little bit more sour tasting. You could also mix together some sour cream and heavy cream (maybe half and half?) and use an equal amount of that mixture in place of the creme fraiche. Hope this helps!
