( leftover ) cream cheese & sour cream loaf cake

I've been checking my  leftover cream cheese & sour cream if it's still okay & what cake could I bake w/ it . There's only a  measly 125 grams of cream cheese left , the recipe I've been eyeing to bake calls for 150 grams & what should I do with my sour cream ? So , because I find it wasteful :P :D ( ok ok I'm cheap hee hee ) just to throw it away  , why not include it to the recipe ? Since , I'm the guinea pig :D , why not ? . I based my recipe here ,  halving most of the ingredients & reducing the sugar . After baking it , I call  it ( leftover ^-^ " ) cream cheese & sour cream (loaf ) cake coz , it's not as dense as pound cake , more of a cake-like texture & even though I use 200 grams of sugar it's not as sweet , partly because of the sour cream that I use . The end result ? I'll say , crack at the top & some pockmarks inside but it's good hee hee
