This was really nice, if a bit on the dense side. I substituted the egg with 1/2 mashed banana and 1/2 tsp baking powder. I didn't change anything else, but only omitted the melted butter coating. This took about 90 minutes of baking in my really slow oven. The buttermilk taste is very distinct, but I was wondering where the poppy seeds went! I've never made bread with poppy seeds so I'm unsure what sort of flavour it's supposed to lend, because I couldn't distinguish any "unusual" flavour. This tastes fantastic the next day! All the flavours just seem to settle right together!
