"Moist and delicious. I substitued plain yogurt for sour milk. I used 1/2 c brown and 1/2 cup white sugar and used mixed spices (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc) instead of cocoa. I also didn't have lard..." See more (?) so I used butter flavoured margarine. Took a while longer to bake but boy was it good. Lastly, I added 1/2 a pack of yeast. Made it a bit fluffier and less dense. yum!"
