Top Review by mizjmassie

This is the same recipe for a bakery called "Big Mama's" that was shown one the Foodnetwork. I was so happy to be able to get the recipe online because it sure looked good. The chef gave all the ingredients with the exception of the flour and buttermilk. This cake is very moist and rich and has somewhat of a Southern quality to it. This is going to become one of my regulars to sell now. I'll add some vanilla flavoring to my caramel sauce and make another small tweak to make it my own. It definitely worth sharing and making for others to enjoy.
