Very dry and "dull". I think it would have been much better if not baked as long as the recipe called for. Will try a different one next time.

I think this would be a great recipe for those that loves buttermilk

really good taste, moist and flavorful. However, I found that it was necessary to cook at 350° F and for the full hour. Other than that a worthwhile recipe to attempt!
