    Lovely light tea cake that tasted great just as it was without any additionas. The flavour of the buttermilk and the brown sugar comes through for a great taste. Good with afternoon tea or in a lunch box. - 15 Oct 2012

    Lovely light cake. I used walnuts & pecans, the pecans went a little bit chewy which was nice. I also added some mixed spice & vanilla essence, delicious! - 15 Jul 2016
