Make-it-Yourself Monday: Buttermilk substitute

Today's Make-it-Yourself Monday idea is a simple baking tip: what to do when you're out of buttermilk.

If you find yourself needing buttermilk for a recipe but don't have any on hand (or prefer a cheaper alternative), you can make a very simple substitution. Simply pour one tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice into a measuring cup, then add milk up to the one cup line. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes before using.

Thank you! I have a hard time finding buttermilk if it is not Christmastime.

This also works with soy milk. We're dairy free and I've successfully used soy milk and lemon juice together. This substitute is such a money saver!
