  1. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in three additions, alternating with the buttermilk in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  2. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top with a spatula. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. To make the frosting, in a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and mix until the frosting is smooth.
  2. Once the cake is completely cool, spread the frosting over the top and sides of the cake.
  3. Serve and enjoy!
