Hi Hey Hello! I’ll hold on a minute while you grab some milk and vinegar.
…welcome back!

Nothing makes me happier than the thought of making buttermilk pancakes on a Sunday mornin’. All the feels are about that delicious comfort with a no-work day ahead. ❤
Too bad it’s only Wednesday… let’s just pretend.

On that same note, nothing makes me more angry than opening up the fridge only to find a drop of buttermilk in the carton. I’m fuming at just the thought of this injustice.

Luckily for us, it’s super easy to make a very quick buttermilk substitute in minutes, in our own kitchens, with just two ingredients that we always have on hand; milk and white vinegar.

The importance of buttermilk in almost any baking recipe is to add tenderness and lighten the batter. Whether you’re making sweet rolls, pancakes, or Soda Bread, buttermilk aids in leaving our baked goods airy, tender, and delicious.

I use this recipe regularly for pancakes, biscuits, breads, and so on. Note that this recipe doesn’t make a thick and creamy buttermilk, however it does perform its role in baked goods. It’s also a life-saver when you’re craving pancakes, but the buttermilk carton is empty.

Recipe Notes

This substitute does mimic the function of buttermilk, however it does lack that buttermilk flavor. This is a great substitute for when a recipe calls for buttermilk, but you don't have any on hand.

    Thank you so much for this recipe. We are trying to eliminate processed foods so this is a great addition to our box of homemade recipes! By the way where did you get that cute bottle?

    I like this method for years then one day I had no vinegar. I always have sour cream on hand so used 1/4 cup sour cream in a measuring cup and added enough milk to make way cups. Stir briskly with a fork. Set aside for 15 minutes. The flavor difference was notably more tangy like buttermilk.

  3. Although technically it’s soured or curdled milk, it will do in a pinch but there’s nothing like real buttermilk in a recipe. My first pancakes and biscuits using it were a revelation. Boil the milk and add a bit more vinegar and you get cheese. 🙂
