Buttermilk: The Substitution

Buttermilk is not something most of us keep in our fridge.  Occasionally a nice recipe calls for buttermilk, so you say to yourself, “what to do”?  Here are five different substitutes that you can make with items almost everyone has in the kitchen.  Now you can enjoy those buttermilk biscuits you’ve wanted to make.

To make each of these substitutes for buttermilk, stir the ingredients together and let them sit for about 10 minutes so the milk can “sour.” Then go ahead and use it as a substitute for buttermilk in baking. One cup of real or substitute buttermilk = 1 c. of whole, skim, or non-fat milk.

  1. White Vinegar + Milk: 1 Tbsp. white vinegar + enough milk to make 1 cup
  2. Lemon Juice + Milk: 1 Tbsp. lemon juice + enough milk to make 1 cup
  3. Cream of Tartar + Milk: 1¾ tsp. cream of tartar + 1 c. milk
  4. Yogurt + Milk: ¾ c. yogurt + ¼ c. milk
  5. Sour Cream + Milk: ¾ c. sour cream + ¼ c. milk
