"I have never tasted anything quite like this cake. Very, very delicious. This has become my family's favorite cake."
"I've made this cake several times and everyone loves it. My niece just asked me to e-mail it to her. One thing I learned when I didn't have any buttermilk in the house is you can add milk to 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to make the one cup of buttermilk. I've done this several times and it comes out perfect. Because I'm asked to make this so often I always have one cup portions of buttermilk in small containers in the freezer."
