NOTE: Since not many people have buttermilk sitting in their fridge, an easy conversion is to use plain yogurt. Use the same amount as called for with the buttermilk. If you do not have plain yogurt but have vanilla yogurt, go ahead and use that but omit the vanilla called for in the recipe.
Also, you may choose to use honey instead of brown sugar. If you do choose to do that, use less then 1/4 cup of honey as that will be plenty. Since the fruit contains sweetness and if you are using vanilla yogurt and that contains sweetness, you may choose to omit the brown sugar/honey altogether.
