I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

*1/2 cup buttermilk

~Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
~Grease one loaf pan (bread pan).
~In a large mixing bowl, cream butter & sugar together.
~Mix in one egg at a time, beating well after each egg.
~Stir in lemon & vanilla extracts.
~Mix in flour & buttermilk.
~Pour cake batter into prepared pan.
