How to make Buttermilk with just 2 ingredients: Milk and White Vinegar.

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.

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.

HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK

You will only need a 3 tablespoons white vinegar and 2 cups of milk; mix it together, set aside, and 15 minutes later you’ve got BUTTERMILK!

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.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 scant cups 2% milk

Instructions

  • Add enough milk to make 2 cups total.
  • Stir to combine and let stand 15 minutes. The mixture will begin to curdle.

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.

  1. I have to try this…when I make buttermilk, I use half and half (or light cream) and 4tbsp of vinegar per cup, let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Comes out nice and thick.

  2. ty for the recipe,I also saved it or future recipes. I was wondering about the cute jar,what size is it and did you write homemade buttermilk on it or did you buy it that.
