Moms buttermilk cake

Kim Wyatt


Every time we talked about moms cake people would say that it would be weird with buttermilk in it. Once they tasted it they always asked her to make them for every potluck.

How to Make Moms buttermilk cake


  1. mix sugar and flour in a large bowl
  2. heat the butter, cocoa powder and water over low heat until well mixed, pour over dry ingredients
  3. Mix extra well
  4. add next five (5) ingredients mixing well after each item-this batter gets stiff and then loosens up a little-blew up a mixer making 6 of these for my nieces wedding.
  5. pour into a greased an floured pan-I use 11 x 13 inch glass pan-and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  6. While the cake is baking melt the butter, cocoa powder, buttermilk and vanilla in a pan on the stove-use the one you used originally why clean more than one pan?
  7. Mix in powdered sugar until thick.
  8. Once cake is done poke it with a knife or fork ALL OVER-mom said if you don't get enough holes the cake is no good-While cake and frosting are still hot pour frosting over cake.
  9. Leave cake and all in the pan until halfway cool-that is usually when I give in because the kids have whined so much-cut and serve. I like it warm with ice cream on it.
