Buttermilk Substitute - how to make it when you don't have any



Making a recipe that calls for buttermilk?

If you don't have any on hand, you can easily make this substitute.  I have done this many times.  It does not have the same richness as real buttermilk, but if your just making pancakes etc. it will substitute just fine.  No one will notice.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Milk (just under one cup)
 
Directions:
1. Place 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup.
2. Add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line.
3. Let stand for five minute. Then, use as much as your recipe indicates.
