This would have been 5 stars because the result is very tasty and moist, but it loses one because the cook-time is closer to an hour than half an hour. I also made it again when I didn't have any buttermilk, substituted apple sauce and it came out great!

This was very good! I can't believe how moist it was. I left out the pecans, because my boyfriend doesn't care for them in baked goods. What a great snack or quick breakfast with morning coffee. I'll make this again and again! :)
