Uses for buttermilk?

I've been looking around for something to make for Christmas breakfast tomorrow morning. I found a recipe for blueberry crumble coffee cake. It calls for 1/2 cup of buttermilk. The store only had a quart sized container so I'm going to have a lot left over. I don't want to just throw it out but the only other use I can think of is to marinade some chicken in it this week. Any other ideas?

For future reference...add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to a cup of milk and let sit 5 minutes. This works well in recipes. I can't ever use up buttermilk so I dont buy it anymore. My MIL just drinks it

I'd make some extra yummy pancakes

But here is a list of ways to use it up:

Lemon juice instead of vinegar works too.

Add me to the "makes her own buttermilk" club.

Add me to the list of buttermilk drinkers. My mother used to buy it and drink it. It has a similar taste to natural yoghurt, a kind of acidic dairy taste. Very refreshing. It is very good for baking as various PPs have pointed out, especially quick breads. It can also be used in corn bread and chess pie. Powdered buttermilk is available in health food stores, if you want to have the ingredient on hand.

Buttermilk Pie

Won the Blue Ribbon at the Kentucky State Fair, and only needs 6 ingredients:

Quote:
Buttermilk pie has become a specialty for Linda Horton of Valley Station. Her blue-ribbon winning entry took top prize in the category for the second consecutive year at the 2014 Kentucky State Fair.



Buttermilk Pie

1 stick butter

2 Tablespoons flour

2/3 cup buttermilk

1 1/4 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 store-bought refrigerated pie pastry crusts

Mix ingredients together and beat well. Line two 8-inch pie pans with pastry crust, or 1 nine-inch pie pan. Pour batter into pie crust(s). Bake at 350 degrees for 39 minutes for eight-inch pies, or 45 minutes for nine-inch pie or until light brown on top.

My wife uses that for her pie dough. I never thought of it as a replacement for buttermilk, though.

I would use it to make some homemade ranch salad dressing . I have never found any in a bottle that rivals the homemade recipe from the Hidden Valley Ranch packet.

I've done the homemade buttermilk trick thing and, while it works, I still don't think it's the same as buying buttermilk. There is just something different about real buttermilk. I think if you are making a sauce or a dressing, you should use the real thing. I actually think it works better for the chicken marinade than the improvised stuff. But I have used the improvised stuff before in some pancakes and it worked out fine.

OP, I have the same issue. I had to get a quart of buttermilk for a chicken recipe (marinade AND the sauce). I'm hanging on to that last cup in case I can use it this week.

Foodhook Farm Pancakes. Fordhook Farm is the family farm to the Burpee Seed Company. It is a Bed & Breakfast in Pennsylvania and they serve the best pancakes!!! We went there years ago and I always crave those pancakes.

I found an adapted recipe that I use now. You make it the night before and make the pancakes in the morning.
