What if I were to add 1 cup of buttermilk instead of 1 cup milk + 1 teaspoon vinegar?

I think buttermilk would work, and I'd be willing to try it if I were making the cake.
I think I am going for the buttermilk. Will let you know how it goes. Thanks so much again!
All went well with the buttermilk substitution; will frost it in the morning. The few crumbs I tasted were delicious. Cake is moist, too. Thanks again, hla, for giving me the courage to follow my instinct on this one.
Yay! I'm glad to hear you had success!
