How to Make Sour Milk to Substitute for Buttermilk thumbnail
Regular milk can be soured and substituted for buttermilk.

If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don’t have any on hand, it’s easy to make a substitute with regular milk. By adding an acidic ingredient to milk, you can sour it, making it a substitute for buttermilk. Use the same amount of substitute as the recipe calls for buttermilk. Adjust the proportions in the basic substitute recipe to produce the amount of buttermilk substitute you need.
