Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This cake was the most popular cake of the 70ís and early 80ís in our community. There would always be at least 2 at pot lucks, normally one with nuts and one without. To make buttermilk use whole milk with vinegar or lemon juice to curdle. The cake travels well and is easy to serve.
