This cake is soooo good, I was trying to recreate Duncan Hines Caramel Apple Cake, and I ended up liking my version more. It bakes beautifully and I ensure you it'll be gone in seconds. —Dania Kazah

  • 1/2 cup Sour cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in sour cream and set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, and then add vanilla extract. Add eggs one at a time until combined.

this recipe needs editing. The ingredients and the text don't match. Butter or buttermilk? How much?
