Buttermilk alternative

what can i use instead of buttermilk in Pauls chocolate cake recipe?


Yes it does, thank you


Hi Tomandhen123

You can make your own buttermilk at home by adding a table spoon of lemon juice to one cup measure of lukewarm milk. Leave it for 15 minutes at room temperature, once it has curdled you have buttermilk. Use it in any recipe which asks for it.
Hope this helps.


i heard yougut can be used as a replacement for buttermilk. how true is this?


Yes it can, measure for measure. ?
