Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom made great bread, but I don't remember the buttermilk. Dad really enjoyed buttermilk from time to time, I just don't remember her using it as an ingredient when she made bread. Still, I assume this bread is excellent or it wouldn't have been included in her "special" cookbook.
