Taste: The cornmeal mix adds a sweet flavor, while the sour cream provides a mild tang.


Texture: The cake is very moist and velvety in texture.


Effort: This is a simple recipe that requires only one bowl to prepare.

Sour Cream: When baking, using sour cream can give your baked goods a velvety texture and add moisture while providing a little structure. In this recipe, sour cream is combined with milk to create a moist bread that is both soft and holds together well.
