Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

A lovely breakfast treat for the family! I didnt use the frosting because none of us are crazy about very sweet breakfast dishes and it was really nice nonetheless. Easy to make too which is always a BIG plus, lol! Our youngest son has some friends coming for a sleepover next weekend and has asked me to make it for breakfast. Praise indeed!

I made this with walnuts because I didn't have pecans....I also added 3/4 cup golden raisons .....I knew this recipe would be good because it had buttermilk in...will make again...thanks
