Dan Lepard's recipe for marble cake includes 65g of sour cream (which I forgot to buy) can I use crème fraiche instead?

Creme fraiche is very similar to sour cream, just a bit higher in fat so I'm sure it would be fine to use. You could also "sour" some single cream if you have that by adding some lemon juice - about 1 tablespoon to 100 ml. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Cathan. I'm going to go for it.

Did the creme fraiche work in your cake (instead of sour cream)? I've got the same problem today!
