    Very easy and very tasty! Definitely a crowd-pleaser. I didn't have buttermilk so just substituted 2% with one tablespoon lemon juice and it was still great.

    I actually cut the oil and sweetener by 1/2 with great results. The texture is still wonderful, and it's perfect for an afternoon snack with the reduced fat and sugars. I didn't have quite enough maple syrup so I made up the difference with light molasses, which gave a wonderful rich flavor. I might just keep doing that! I also mixed the nuts in the batter, finding that the toasting and chopping fine did intensify the flavor nicely.

    This is a very simple and quick recipe and the end product is very nice: mildly sweet and very tender. Good w/ tea or coffee. I will keep this recipe and use it regularly.

    Delicious! To increase the maple flavor, which we love, I used 1 tsp of Boyajian maple flavor from King Arthur Flour in addition to the syrup. I didn't have walnut oil so used vegetable oil instead, and I love cinnamon so added 1/2 tsp to the dry ingredients and 1/4 cup of mini cinnamon chips (also from KA Flour). Lovely for breakfast or dessert!
