Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mary Thomas: This was my Mother's recipe (Katherine "Kate" Reynolds) and I sometimes call it "Buttermilk Cake" which sounds more appealing. Likely in her early days with lack of refrigeration there was often milk on hand that had gone sour and this was a great way to use it. Most of the time I use buttermilk or you can just add a tablespoon of vinegar to regular milk and make your own sour milk. A good snack cake just to eat a slice out of your hand.
