The recipie does not have buttermilk listed, but it says to add it in the instructions.
One thing I meant to add to the recipe is that it is very versatile. Use any dried fruit or none. I have even used choc. chips. Instead of 7/8 C of honey, you can use a cup of sugar. If you use dried fruit, you may want to cut back on the sugar or honey. It is really up to you. Also, you may not have to sift the whole wheat flour. If you do, unless you dump the "remains" back in, you will remove some fiber.
