Instructions
  1. If you need 1 cup of buttermilk, put 1 tablespoon of either white vinegar or lemon juice in your measuring cup.
  2. Add the milk until you get to the 1 cup mark.
  3. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Voila...you've just made buttermilk!
  5. You can easily adjusts the amounts depending on how much buttermilk you need. For example:
  6. If you need ½ cup of buttermilk use ½ tablespoon of either white vinegar or lemon juice.
  7. If you need 2 cups of buttermilk use 2 tablespoons of either white vinegar or lemon juice.
Notes
If you're baking, I suggest using whole milk or 2% for a rich taste. Opt for 1% or skim milk when you're using buttermilk in low fat recipes.
