Brenda-Lee Barajas


I have made this cake for 39 years. Every since I have been is so good. I have not had one person that did not like this.If you do not have buttermilk. Just use half cup of milk with one tab, Vinegar..mix.. let it set while you prepare it, It will thicken.. I use it all the time IF I do NOT have buttermilk.
