Great basic recipe! I followed the suggestions of some other reviewers and turned the heat down (to 350) and left the bread in for about 20 minutes longer--a total of 1 hr, 10 minutes--and it's lovely and brown on the outside, but nice and moist and fully baked on the inside. A couple other modifications to be recommended: sub in some whole grain flour (I used 1 c. fresh oat flour, and 1/2 c. fresh whole wheat) and knead in currants if you like them. The butter can be melted and the mixed with the buttermilk-egg mixture to make it easier to add in. Also, if you're short on buttermilk, but have some plain yogurt in the fridge, just mix 1/2 c. yogurt with 1/2 c. milk to substitute for the buttermilk--it works just fine!
