  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients alternating with the buttermilk. Spread the batter out in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Unmould.
