This original cake recipe is not quite so rich and dense as a pound cake (but almost!) nor so sweet and fluffy as a yellow cake (but almost!) – I think it’s the ratios and buttermilk that do it. I Made this for a party, iced half with a simple peanut butter caramel and left half plain. It got sucked down, but not before I noticed it was a nice balance of textures and tastes.
