Sharon, this bread is wonderful, tasty and moist. I used pecans in this bread. I really liked the buttermilk, which did make the bread moist. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. I will definately use this one again.

Serve with chocolate honey butter: 1/2 cup butter, only 2 tbsp. honey 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup Mix together well. Serve with bread. Recipe can be halved.
