Pancake Day is upon us which means the number one question on everyone’s mind will be “What can I use in place of buttermilk?”

Buttermilk Substitute

The easiest buttermilk substitute is a bit of plain yogurt thinned with a splash of whole milk.

Buttermilk Alternative – Vinegar

Stir 1 tablespoon white vinegar into 1 cup milk. Some people say that vinegar leaves and aftertaste but if you are using it for baking, I can’t taste it.

Buttermilk Alternative – Lemon Juice

Stir 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk. Leave to sit for 5 minutes for it to sour the milk and you’re ready to go.
