    Made this today with frozen Tripleberry fruit from Costco & made my own buttermilk using 1%milk and fresh lemon juice. It was delicious, moist & a generous slice for the + points… Did not add any yogurt topping.
    Served to guests who seemed to enjoy it very much.
    Thanks for a great recipe.
