Buttermilk cake is good to serve family and friends as dessert or with a tall glass of milk anytime.  This buttermilk cake is wonderful for any holiday.  It is a classic that never goes out of style and one you will make over and over again.  It makes a great presentation served on any buffet and there will not be any leftover.  Serve it with a scoop of ice cream or just plain with coffee.  This buttermilk cake speaks for itself.  I love the simplicity of the cake and the good old-fashioned taste.  You can never go wrong with this one.


  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Beat sugar, shortening, vanilla and eggs together with spoon or mixer.  Mix flour, salt and baking soda with a wire whisk and add to creamed mixture.   Add milk and continue mixing until smooth.  Divide between 3 sprayed cake pans and bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until centers test done.  Let cool and remove from pans.  You can frost with any frosting you like. I used the chocolate below.

Chocolate Frosting;

  • 1 stick  or 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa ( I use Nestles 100% pure cocoa)

Mix all ingredients with mixer until spreading consistency.  Spread on cake.
