Notes

  • Substitute vegetable oil for the butter to reduce saturated fat.
  • Try other dried fruit.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon before baking.
  • Try mixing in 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon or orange zest (grate the outer colored part of the peel).
  • No buttermilk? Place 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in measuring cup and fill to the 1 cup line with milk. Stir and let set to thicken slightly.
  • Whole wheat flour can be replaced with all purpose flour.
