How to make your own Buttermilk

  • #1 – Buy Powdered Buttermilk. This stuff keeps forever and it’s great when you get the urge to make buttermilk pancakes, waffles, or a skillet cake. I use this brand that I bought at my grocery store. Bob’s Red Mill also has powdered buttermilk.
  • #2 – Make your own. Buttermilk is “soured” milk and the quick way to turn your milk is with lemon juice. Add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice for every cup of milk. So in this recipe, add 1/2 C milk and 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice. You may taste some lemon in this cake and that’s not a bad thing.
  • #3 – Add a Cream of Tartar as your acid. You’ll skip the lemon flavor but the cream of tartar will still give a slight tang to the cake. Mix 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of cream of tartar to your DRY ingredients for every cup of milk. In this recipe, add 3/4 teaspoon to the flour mixture, then add in your milk as directed.

Serve it with some fresh whipped cream or even some ice cream.
