I saw a thread about the opposite of my situation. I have a recipe that calls for buttermilk but I only have milk & don't wanna go to the store (it's late & really friggin cold outside) Can I use milk instead of buttermilk? I am trying to do Meomy's "Basic Chocolate Cake" in the recipe section & I have all of the ingredients except buttermilk.


PS. have you ever noticed that the long you look at a word the more wrong it seems to be? icon_confused.gif "Milk" just looks weird to me right now cause I kep saying it & typing it over & over. icon_razz.gif

Place a Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup and enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line. Let it stand for about five or so minutes, until you see it curdle. This makes 1 cup of buttermilk

You can substitute soured milk for buttermilk in a pinch:

1 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar
1 Combine ingredients and let stand 5 minutes.
2 After 5 minutes, mix together well and use as buttermilk in any recipe!

I don't know exact measurements, but if I need buttermilk and only have milk, I add a little splash of white vinegar to the milk. Let it sit for a few minutes and it will sour like buttermilk. Then measure out the amount you need. Hope this helps!

yes to all pps... and if you just use regular milk it won't effect much but the flavor anyway. and not that bad.
