Love this recipe. made it in class and it was so quick to make. smells delicious and tastes great. It rises well and is quick becuase you don't have to leave it to prove. Me and my friend both made it, and both turned out excellent. If you're looking to cut fats and sat fats out of this recipe, then switch the buttermilk for the same quantity semi-skimmed milk (I'm sure you could use skim as well) that has been mixed with just over one and a half tbsp of lemon juice and sat for two minutes. - 01 Dec 2011
