In a large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl, beat eggs slightly, and blend into mixture. Blend in buttermilk and oil. When well blended, add the remaining ingredients 1 at a time (the batter will be lumpy).
Grease 2 (9 by 11-inch) pans, or 3 (8 by 10-inch) pans. Pour batter into pans, distribute evenly.
Bake 30 to 45 minutes.
