Recipe Notes

*If you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute by stirring 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar into 1 1/2 cups of regular milk. Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes, or until thickened and slightly curdled.

Can also be baked in (2) greased eight-inch diameter cake pans.  Adjust bake time as needed.
