**Most companies have downsized the size of their cake mix. I have made this recipe as indicated using the smaller size mix and still had great success. Or you can use a 2nd mix and add in the missing ounces Either way they turn out great!
*You can use regular sour cream, light sour cream or greek yoghurt.
*You can also use this mix to make cake. Pour batter into greased and floured cake pans. Bake at 325 until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
