The only changes I made were that I used currants instead of raisins and I used 1/2 Tbsp of orange extract instead of orange peel. It was a great tea bread!

I used half the amount of whiskey, changed the flour to spelt flour, used soy milk instead of buttermilk, and honey instead of sugar. All of the changes were for family preferences. The bread is disappearing fast! The whiskey gives a dimension of taste that makes this good!
