This is so good!! Nice and moist and quick to make. I used 2/3 cup granulated white sugar instead of sugar substitute, could even use less next time. Very good!

I really enjoyed this one, I stuck to the recipe except I used low fat buttermilk instead of sour cream and left out the nuts to keep it toddler friendly. It was nice & moist & tasted great. A hit at playgroup this morning!
