I made this (without the topping) as the cake part of a Boston Cream Pie. I was worried about the recipe because of the very strange method (mix all dry ingredients and then add wet??) and the incorrect chemistry - buttermilk requires baking soda to rise properly, there shouldn't be any baking powder in this recipe. But the reviews were all very good so I used the normal cake method (cream butter and sugar, add eggs, add buttermilk, add dry) and tried it. The flavour is excellent, but the cake was a bit on the dry side. I made 3 9-inch rounds.
