No Buttermilk? No Problem! Easy Buttermilk Substitutes

Buttermilk is not something that I keep on hand, but so many of my recipes call for the use of buttermilk. There are several easy substitutes that you can make for buttermilk with ingredients you more than likely have on hand.

Lemon Juice
Add one tablespoon of lemon juice to one cup of milk. Stir and let sit for five minutes before using.

Vinegar
Same as the lemon juice, add one tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of milk. Stir and let sit for five minutes before using.

Cream of Tartar
Add 1 3/4 teaspoons Cream of Tartar to one cup of milk.

Plain Yogurt
Use one cup of plain yogurt in place of every one cup of buttermilk called for.
