Adding sour cream to a cake batter?

lunettes | Jun 13, 2012 08:45 PM

I was in Pathmark the other day, and they had some free samples of a lemon pound cake sitting out. I didn't have high expectations for it, but it turned out to be one of the best, moist cakes I've ever had. I want to replicate the recipe, and I know that adding sour cream to a cake batter makes the cake very moist. I found I recipe that I like. It uses melted butter. I was wondering if I could use room temperature butter and add sour cream, instead of the melted butter. Would this make the pound cake too moist/have any really undesirable effects on the cake?

Thanks in advance :)
