This homemade Buttermilk Substitute requires only 2 ingredients and is done in 5 minutes! If your recipe calls for buttermilk but you don’t have it on hand, try this substitute. It’s even better!
I use my homemade buttermilk to make my One-Bowl Chocolate Cake, Blueberry Muffins or my Sheet Pan Pancakes.
Buttermilk is a leftover liquid from churning butter from cream. You can buy it in the dairy section of your grocery store. Many recipes (including mine) call for it. If you don’t have it on hand, you can easily make this substitute in minutes!
