Almond Sour Cream Cake

Almond is one of my favorite flavors. When I saw this recipe I had to copy it down, as I think the almond, milk and sour cream is going to make for an awesome cake. The original recipe called for 2 t vanilla and 2 t almond but I love love love almond cake and almond muffins so I removed the vanilla and made it 4 teaspoons of almond instead. Also, it called for 1/4 c oil. However, with the amount of sour cream and milk in the recipe I omitted the oil. The original also used water instead of milk, but I'm substituting milk, or perhaps half milk, half cream. I'm going to have fun with this one!
