Description: Moist and buttery cake made from ingredients with a luscious butter sauce

3 cups  unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups & 3/4 cup  sugar
1 teaspoon  salt
1 cup  buttermilk
1 cup & 1/3 cup  butter
4  eggs
3 tablespoons  water

Instructions: 1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
