Deep rich flavor like banana bread, but a lighter cake texture that is so buttery and fresh! Buttermilk adds flavor and keeps this so moist that the crumbs will stick to your fork!
I know that there are bakers that will shortcut and replace the buttermilk with "sour milk" (lemon juice or vinegar are added to milk which causes is to sour up), but for the best flavor, do yourself a favor and use fresh buttermilk. It really does make a difference in both the taste and texture.
This is our favorite recipe for silky cream cheese frosting as well - it is smooth and velvety, and spreads like silk. This recipe makes a LOT of cream cheese frosting - and depending on your group, you may have leftover to frost cupcakes with.
Awesome and fresh! Hope that you enjoy one of our favorite summer cakes as much as we do! This is so good on a hot summer night....
