pan with paper liners. Whisk both flours in a medium bowl. Beat butter in a
large bowl until smooth. Add sugar,; beat until blended. Add eggs on at a time,
then next 3 ingredients (batter may look curdled). Beat in the flour in 3
additions, alternating with buttermilk. Spoon batter into the liners. Make sure
not to over fill, about 2/3 works the best.
