This was one of those recipes that were shoved to the back of my saved recipes. So being home for this health situation gave me the time I needed to organize.

            I found this one, and had to try it all over again. I was amazed all over again. The flavors are rich and creamy, it is hearty, sweet and not hard to make. Even though it is bread, it is more like a cake. It is super moist, fluffy and slightly dense like the cake donut we all love.

Like I said, it is meant for breakfast, but it tastes like a sweet dessert. I have decided that you can use it for either and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Do I have to use Canola oil?

If you prefer, you can certainly use vegetable oil or peanut oil.

            What can I use instead of buttermilk?

There really is no substitute for the buttermilk in this recipe. If needed, add 2 tsp of vinegar into 1 cup of milk. Let this sit for a bit. It will thicken and become buttermilk.
