Vanilla Pound Cake w/ Greek Yogurt

The Greek Yogurt is smooth and very rich in taste. This is similar to chakka, yogurt drained in cloth.In fact a lot of times, I love to use the Greek Yogurt for making Shrikhand which saves a lot of time without having to give up on the taste.
Greek Yogurt is a great substitute for Sour Cream in this recipe.
