• If you don't find buttermilk in your area, you can make buttermilk by adding 1 tsp lemon juice or 1 tsp white vinger to 1 cup of full fat milk.
• To make the coffee add 1 tsp instant coffee to 1 cup hot water. You may adjust this to your preference.
• Make the cake a day before you want it to be served for better taste.
