      This is a soft and yummy cake. I did halve the recipe and made it in a 20 cm cake tin .I used yoghurt instead of buttermilk . In Australia you hardly ever see buttermilk in the supermarket .I served this as advised with fresh fruit . My choice of fruit was fresh pineapple and it was enjoyed by all.Please thank Aunt Mary.
