I've made this bread several times. The flavor is excellent and everyone I've ever served it to has loved it. It is easy and pulls together quickly. For me, though, the amount of buttermilk is off. The first time I made it I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a dry crumbly loaf of dough that would barely hold together. Out of the oven the outside was done but the loaf had a thick, doughy core. Now, I start every time with the 1 cup that is called for. The dough is still dry and crumbly and will not pull together. I have learned to add more buttermilk, a little at a time, until I get the right consistency. I bake for the entire 45 minutes and baste every 10 minutes and get a very nice browned and crunchy crust with a moist and flavorful inside. With that one change this is a great recipe.
