If a recipe calls for: Buttermilk

You can substitute: Regular milk with lemon juice

Strange as it sounds, buttermilk is essentially fermented milk, which is made by adding acid to the milk. Create your own version by adding a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of milk, let it sit for five minutes, then use as the recipe directs.

My mom taught me you can use yogurt, too. I would look up the exact conversion. I used it only once for a buttermilk cake and it was delicious.
