Remember, you may use any brand of cake mix for this recipe. Moreover, you can substitute plain full-fat Greek yogurt with sour cream. However, regular fat sour cream works best for this recipe. Furthermore, use fresh lemon juice for this recipe. Likewise, using bottled lemon juice makes the cake taste different or lacking.
