A Buttermilk Sheet Cake can meet so many baking needs, from a dessert for you and your family to a bake sale at school to a community supper where you can show off your culinary skills. This one is made with great home made ingredients, which ensures a lovely and flavorful snack or dessert for whomever you serve this cake to. This Buttermilk Sheet Cake also includes a home made frosting, which is equally delicious.

Nothing really beats the homemade flavor of something made from scratch, even if it doesn’t rise as much or work out quite the same way as something commercially prepared. It might be all the love and care that goes in to the effort to make something from scratch, and it also might be that using really fresh ingredients and not using fillers, preservatives and other additives makes a substantial flavor difference in your results. Sometimes time precludes us making something from scratch and then the commercial mixes do a fine job on our behalf. Other times, though, when life gives you a free moment (and we can all laugh at that one) making it from scratch makes a big difference.

This dessert includes a frosting that is also homemade. Do not be afraid to double or even triple the vanilla. Do not add scraped vanilla bean or paste as that will add a slightly granular texture to the icing that you do not want. But if you have a really great vanilla, increasing that flavor will only improve the flavor of this Buttermilk Sheet Cake. This recipe is not a difficult one, and can be served at any temperature from warm to chilled. It is probably very delicious with a bit of ice cream on the side (of course, what isn’t?). In any event, try this dessert soon. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Cookies & Cups.
