  • Place the vinegar in a glass-measuring cup, and add enough milk to make 1 cup total liquid.

  • Stir to combine and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes (The mixture will begin to curdle).


  • Bake with it

Buttermilk makes tender cakes, quick breads and biscuits, and works with both sweet and savory flavors.

  • Make pancake

Tender and a little tangy, buttermilk pancakes are a classic for a reason.

  • Make a creamy salad dressing

It's easy to make a quick ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing if you have buttermilk on hand, and they taste so much better than the bottled stuff.

  • Use it in frozen treats

The tartness of buttermilk makes ice cream and milkshakes even more refreshing.

  • Make fried rice and coleslaw for dinner

It's not an every day sort of meal, but this combo is hard to beat and it's a great way to use up extra buttermilk.
