20+ Recipes You'd Never Guess Start With Sour Cream
Best known as a must-have topping for foods like baked potatoes, quesadillas, and chili, sour cream is so much more than a condiment. Its tangy, creamy nature lends itself well to cakes, quick breads, soups, and sauces, plus you can find it in more unusual dishes like Spaghetti Pudding and Yummy Sausage Cups. Find new ways to use this fridge favorite with our collection of delicious recipes featuring sour cream.
Easy One-Bowl Apple Cake
Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese
Our Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese is creamy, spicy, and decadent, with bite-sized pieces of tender chicken breast and a subtle hint of blue cheese. Serve with a nice green salad dressed with a slightly sweet vinaigrette and a crisp glass of cold white wine or a cold beer.
Nehi Orange Poke Cake
Baked Rigatoni with Zucchini and Mozzarella
Strawberry Snacking Cake with Strawberry Whipped Cream
Creamy Honey Mustard
Most honey mustard sauces are simply that: honey and Dijon mustard. While there’s nothing wrong with that simple combo, we thought we could take this favorite dipping sauce up a few notches. We added sour cream for tanginess and creaminess, a little olive oil for richness, and a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little heat. The result is a simple yet sophisticated sauce that works just as well with crudité as it does with chicken wings.
Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake with Caramel Buttercream
Best-Ever Sticky Buns
Tahini Buttermilk Pops
Alternating layers of nutty tahini flavor and tangy buttermilk join forces in this creamy summer delight. Greek yogurt and sour cream provide a thick texture and rich taste while agave nectar sweetens these fresh treats. You can make them up to one week in advance so that they're ready and set the next time you need a cooling sweet for yourself or guests.
Roasted Garlic Butter Biscuits
The robust garlicky flavor of these biscuits is in a league of its own. If you’ve never roasted fresh garlic, you’re in for a treat. With just a drizzle of olive oil and some time in the oven, garlic cloves transform into an incredible caramelized treat that also happens to make your kitchen smell amazing. The roasting process mellows the garlic’s sharp bite and brings out its natural sweetness, all while intensifying the garlic essence.
Cucumber Gazpacho with Blue Crab
Coca Cola Chocolate Cake
Spaghetti pudding may sound strange, but that sure didn’t keep us from going back for seconds (or thirds). Similar to bread pudding or rice pudding, this playful sweet twist on baked spaghetti is enriched with a vanilla custard and delivers all the comfort food vibes one could ever crave. Finished with a vibrant strawberry “red sauce” and chocolate truffle “meatballs,” this decadent dessert is as fun to serve as it is delicious to eat.
Pineapple-Lime Upside Down Cake
Fresh lime zest adds just enough of a zingy “something special” factor to our foolproof take on the classic pineapple upside-down cake. This easy cake is a fan favorite for good reason—it’s so simple to make and is loaded with a delicious balance of buttery-caramelized and tropically sweet flavors.
