"Moist" is my middle name

But you can call me Buttermilk cake, hehehe..

I was having a stressful day and needed to calm myself down last night. As I vet through the fridge, I saw the carton of buttermilk that's about to expire.
So, waste not!

Here's a very simple recipe I managed to google up from the net.

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
125gm butter (half of the 250gm bar)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk

Mix well the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, put them aside.
Beat butter with sugar.
Add in the eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix till fluff.
Add in half of the flour mix, and mix till smooth. Add in half of the buttermilk and mix till smooth. Continue with the remaining.
Bake at 180degrees for 30 mins or till brown.
U can use any type of baking tins, this time I'm using bundt pan.
Oh by the way, you can add in a spoonful of lemon zest and lemon juice into the batter above for more lemony flavour.

Lastly, drizzle the lemon sauce on the cake after it has been cooled on the wire rack.
Some suggests to lightly poke with toothpicks all over the top part of the cake so that the lemon sauce would go deep inside the cake.

To make the lemon sauce, just heat up 1/3 cup of squeezed lemon juice and 2 tbsp sugar, till thickened. Well, actually, the sugar part is quite subjective. Taste the sauce and add in according to your preference.

I opt to use the star-shaped sprinkles this time just to spice up the boring look.
Plus the fact that thats the only sprinkles I have left! LoL!

Have fun baking!
