THIS RECIPE WAS GIVEN TO ME BY AN
OLDER LADY WHEN I WAS JUST A YOUNG BRIDE.I HAVE BEEN MAKING IT FOR SOME 40 YEARS AND MY HUSBAND STILL LOVES IT. THANKS MISS NITA!

ps. Miss Nita thought that the only butter or margarine you should bake with was "Land of Lakes" but I have used others and this cake still taste good.

    -Add the flour and sugar to the hot mixture and stir in the Eggs,Buttermilk,Soda and Vanilla.
