    I know there is a way to "make" buttermilk. Does anyone know how much milk vs. how much vinegar (I think that's the ingredient)? I need to have 1 cup of buttermilk for a cake that I'm going to make and I really don't want to buy a quart of it for only a cup.

    Thanks in advance

    Use 1 Tablespoon of Vinegar or Lemon Juice, then add your milk to make 1 cup. I personally have never used the lemon juice, but it is listed that way on my emergency substitutions list.

    from my banana cake recipe book.

    "to sour milk, add 2 tsp (10ml) lemon juice or vinegar to 1/2 cup (125ml) milk and let stand for 10 min."

    For 1 cup, you'd need 4 tsp.

    1 tsp= 5ml
    1 Tbsp=15ml

    Just be aware that it may change the consistency of your finished product! I now keep buttermilk as a staple in my fridge for pancakes, biscuits, cakes, waffles, b/c the texture is SO much nicer with the real thing!

    BTW, I always used lemon juice just to add a little extra flavor.

    I have a tub of powdered buttermilk that I keep in my fridge. Just add water! Not sure what the brand on it is.
