Does buttermilk make a difference in baking?

Buttermilk helps break down long strands of gluten and proteins in baked goods. That means every recipe that uses a splash of buttermilk is just a bit more tender than those that call for regular milk or water.

What Ingredients do I need?

Just 2 ingredients...that's it!

🥛Whole milk or 2% milk

🍋Freshly squeezed lemon juice or white distilled vinegar

How to Make Buttermilk

For every 1 cup of milk, stir in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. The acid will curdle the milk slightly. If the milk has not curdled, give it another 5 minutes.

How to store leftover Buttermilk

If you have any leftover buttermilk substitute mixture, store it in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep for about 3-4 days.
