"this bread is EXCELLENT! Just sweet enough to be a sweet bread, but not TOO sweet like a coffee cake. I thought it made a great breakfast bread warmed slightly with a bit of butter. Very nice consistency, tasted wonderful! I HIGHLY recommend trying this one. *note* I didnt have buttermilk, so I used skim. I also reduced the sugar because the fruit has enough sweetening properties. It was still excellent!"
