Another wonderful cake from Hershey's Best-Loved Recipes, I already had all of the ingredients on hand. If you don't have buttermilk, substitute it with 1 T. white vinegar plus milk to equal 1 cup.

I made this cake because I wanted to use up some syrup. I thought it was kind of dry and will not be repeating. Not one of my favorites.
