I have been making a version of this recipe for many years. It is always a hit, very moist and tasty. I often substitute honey for the sugar but use less than is called for, using @ 1 c. sugar and bit less than 1/2 c. Honey. I substitute plain yogurt for buttermilk.

I also add 1/2 teas. salt, 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and double the spices, using in addition allspice, and ginger.
