      Just made this last night. My husband is in love with this. I too substituted sour cream for the buttermilk and it turned out to be very moist and delicious. Thanks for posting!

      I hated making substitutions, but I didn't have rum or currants. I used Applejack brandy & cranberries instead. The bread smelled divine in the oven! It came out a perfect, nicely risen loaf that was sweet & moist. I'll be keeping this recipe around & buying me some Cpt. Morgan's. Thanks for sharing Susie! UPDATE: I have now made this recipe several times, but until today was unable to find currents. My mom is in town visiting for the holiday & she wanted to try this recipe. We lucked out finding one box of currents & soaked them in brandy, subbed the buttermilk with sour cream & still this bread is moist, delicious & I now LOVE the currents!

      If Heaven has a smell, this is it! It also tastes as good as it smells! The calories are worth a splurge, but hard not to go back for seconds!
