You can also use 1 cup of milk (not skim, or 1%) and add 2 tblsp white vinegar to it. Stir and then let sit on counter for at least 15 minutes. A very good substitute, and not everyone has powdered milk on hand, but thanks for an alternative.

This worked really well for me. I hardly EVER have buttermilk on-hand, so recipes like this are always a lifesaver. It doubles easily. I used it to make Irish Soda Bread for dinner tomorrow and this recipe really did the trick. I will be using this recipe for many years to come, thanks so much for sharing!

This did not work well for me in Buttermilk Dressing. I had to add more mayonnaise for thickening. It would probably be ok in baked goods.

You can also use almost 1 cup milk & 1 T lemon juice. Let it sit 10 mins

I used this recipe tonight becasue I needed buttermilk for my Mouthwatering Strawberry Muffins recipe and I didn't realize I was out. This worked perfectly and came together just like buttermilk. Thanks for sharing this easy substitute recipe! It was really helpful in a pinch!
