I love this! There's nothing like an old fashioned yellow buttermilk cake recipe! Nothing brings out the moistness in a cake like that buttermilk does.
Great post.. has my ^5 !

I agree with pinkpasta! Love that buttermilk, and it is the perfect ingredient for an old fashioned yellow cake. My mother also made one with chocolate icing. Something about that chocolate icing on a yellow cake!! :)rosemaryblue in CollegeTown loved it
