Buttermilk Substitute

I can’t count the number of times that I’ve had a recipe that calls for buttermilk but no buttermilk in the fridge. In fact, I rarely buy buttermilk, because my need for it is so sporadic. Here’s an easy substitute I often use that works like a charm.

Buttermilk Substitute
Serves: 1 cup
  • scant 1 cup milk
  • 1 T white vinegar or lemon/lime juice
  1. Pour vinegar or lemon/lime juice into a measuring cup.
  2. Add enough milk to reach the one cup line.
  3. Let sit for 5 minutes, until bubbles start to form on top, and use just as you would buttermilk in a recipe.
  4. Can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
