Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the top springs back when touched.

Cool the cake completely on a wire rack.

If you like, line a serving tray or pan with parchment and place the cake on it. Then frost the cake with Fluffy White Icing.

Notes

*Very few people keep buttermilk on hand. To make quick buttermilk at home, just add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to a cup of sweet milk. Let it sit for about a minute to thicken, then use it in your recipe. Or, if you prefer, sweet milk will work fine too. Buttermilk adds richness, though.
