How to Use Sour Cream in Everyday Recipes

strawberries and sour cream

I love eating sour cream straight out of the container!

Ever since I can remember, sour cream was a huge indulgence – the kind of food that gives you intense pleasure with every spoonful.

But there are plenty of other ways you can use sour cream to enhance everyday recipes, and also to replace common ingredients. Here are a few examples:

1. If the recipe calls for Crème Fraiche, you can use the same amount of sour cream instead.

2. Sour cream can replace buttermilk in most recipes. Use the same amount the recipe calls for – so, a cup of sour cream can replace a cup of buttermilk.

3. Plain, full fat yogurt and sour cream are interchangeable in most recipes.

4. Definitely substitute sour cream for mayonnaise. It will turn out just as good, and will have less calories.

5. Did you know that sour cream can greatly improve store bought cake mix? Add and mix all the liquid ingredients according to the instructions on the box. When blended, add a cup of sour cream. The cake will turn out richer and fluffier.

6. Using sour cream as a substitute for milk in baked goods recipes adds flavor and richness. Try substituting half of the milk with sour cream.

7. Instead of topping fruit and desserts with whipped cream, make a rich, unique topping by whisking brown sugar and sour cream (try using 1/4 cup sugar for each cup of sour cream). This also makes a great topping for pancakes.

8. Adding a little sour cream to your scrambled eggs before you cook them will result in rich, creamy eggs.

When cooking with sour cream, remember not to overheat or boil it. If sour cream is cooked at too high a temperature or held over heat too long, even at a low temperature, it will break down.
