    I used 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, substituted olive oil for half the butter, used wholemeal flour with a 1/2 cup almond meal and yoghurt instead of buttermilk. Absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making this one regularly!  -  07 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Absolutely scrumptious. I changed ingredients slightly and used 3 apples as well as a small tub of SPC apple purée and added 1 1/4 cups of chopped walnuts and as a previous reviewer said 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk is perfect.  -  18 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Altered ingredient amounts. i used 1 tsp of baking powder and i think more milk would have been better as the mixture was more like playdough than batter but in the end it turned out well  -  03 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
