Top Review by karen in tbay

I don't bake because I don't like to bake, I love to cook so I had my DD make this and omg, 100 stars....and I may just start baking to make this again. This will be an annual favorite during rhubarb harvesting. I believe there is a couple more cups of buttermilk left to whip up some thank you cakes for family and friends. THANK YOU
