This bread is very good, however it doesn't have that much of a butterscotch taste. It is subtly sweet and baked up perfect. It released from my stone pan beautifully and smelled very good baking. Next time I am going to add butterscotch or toffee chips in place of the raisins. Everyone in the house enjoyed the bread and I will definitely make it again. I love that it calls for buttermilk in place of oil/butter!

I've made many loaves of this bread in my son's restaurant. It is always a hit - with the chefs and the customers. I add a little topping of sugar, cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg before it goes in the oven. Yummy!
