Vanilla Ring Cake

I found this Bundt (or ring) cake recipe in a 'Taste Of Home' recipe cards booklet (I must tell you, this is a pretty sweet cake and has a lot of vanilla; but it is a cake, after all!).

*This cake could probably just as easily be a lemon cake by substituting lemon extract for the vanilla.

**To make a substitute for the buttermilk, add a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk and let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes.
