7. Bake for approximately 50 minutes, or until tester inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool on rack while fighting off dogs with violently twitching noses.

Recipe Notes (summarized from comments on the AllRecipes site):

  • Double or triple the amount of streusel and put half in middle (which is what I’ve done)
  • Replace white sugar with brown sugar (also done)
  • Worked well with wholewheat glour (with extra 2 tablespoons of milk)
  • Replace vegetable oil with butter (also done – was 60ml of vegetable oil originally)
  • Lower temperature for longer baking time = moister bread?
  • Also bake-able as muffins.
  • Substitutes for buttermilk:
    • For 1 cup of buttermilk – 1 tablespoon of vinegar and fill the rest with milk
    • For 1 cup of buttermilk – 2 tablespoons of sour cream, and one cup of milk
