I don’t buy buttermilk on a regular basis, but sometimes I find myself needing a cup here or there in a recipe. Â Instead of running off to the store to buy some, I do this little trick. Â All you need is a bit of lemon juice, and regular milk, and you can make your own substitute for Buttermilk! Â The vinegar curdles the milk, and makes it resemble buttermilk. Â It unfortunately does not have the same effect in making fluffy buttermilk pancakes, but they do taste about the same.
about 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice to 1 cup Milk
Simply add the lemon juice to the buttermilk, stir up a bit, and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Use in your recipe as directed.
