Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour your pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 2 cups sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix in buttermilk, 1 cup of butter, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and 4 eggs. Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.


Bake in preheated oven about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

(This is optional)

To Make Butter Sauce: In a saucepan combine the remaining 3/4 cups sugar, 1/3 cup butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and the water. Cook over medium heat, until fully melted and combined, but do not boil.

Insert a skewer to make deep holes in the warm cake. Gradually pour sauce over cake to let sauce penetrate each holes. Let cake cool before removing from pan.
