"This recipe came from my mother, Constance Wagner, who may have got it from Irma Rombauer's JOY OF COOKING. She states that powdered buttermilk can be used if you follow the label instructions and mix the powdered buttermilk with the dry ingredients, then add 1 cup of water with the liquids. Frosting can be French buttercream with a grating of bitter chocolate on top."
