Make Your Own Buttermilk

E-Mealz, cooking, substituting for buttermilkI love cooking with buttermilk; however, I don’t always have it on hand every time I would like to use it.  My mother-in-law passed down a homemade waffle recipe that requires buttermilk and my kids love it.  On the weekends, they will get up and say “We want waffles and not from the freezer.”  I have learned over the years that if I don’t have buttermilk,  I can make my own.  Use the recipe below and you won’t have to worry about whether you have buttermilk in your refrigerator.  Enjoy!




  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) regular milk
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) vinegar or lemon juice


  • add 2 tsp (10 ml). vinegar or lemon juice to regular milk, let stand a few minutes to sour.
