No buttermilk? Place 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in measuring cup and fill to the 1 cup line with milk. Stir and let set to thicken slightly.

Whole wheat flour can be replaced with all purpose flour. Substitute vegetable oil for the butter to reduce saturated fat.

Try other dried fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon before baking. Try mixing in 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon or orange zest (grate the outer colored part of the peel).
