Can I use cream instead of sour cream?
Besides, is sour cream and heavy cream the same?
Sour cream is made by adding lactic acid culture to cream and sometimes milk to thicken and sour it. Heavy cream has a fat content of about 30% and does not contain any added thickeners. It is thicker, has a richer flavor, and is less tangy than sour cream.

Just so, what can you substitute for sour cream in baking?
To substitute 1 cup of sour cream in a baking recipe, use 1 cup yogurt plus 1 teaspoon baking soda. If you are making a dip, it is an even swap—just make sure you use Greek yogurt or the yogurt is drained.
Can you use sour cream instead of half and half?
I often substitute good yogurt or sour cream for cream and half-n-half. Either would work great in that recipe, using the same half-cup. I would eliminate the water and just use 1 & 1/2 cups of milk. Yogurt and sour cream may curdle if not careful.
