Substitute Regular Milk for Buttermilk in Your Gluten-Free or Grain-Free Cake Recipe

Try this substitution for regular milk for your next cake recipe!



1 tbsp fresh lemon juice or vinegar



Purchase buttermilk.

It will taste better, but if not, I add 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice or vinegar and let it sit 5 to 10 mins.


I put about 1 tbsp vinegar in a liquid measuring cup, then fill it up with milk to make a cup. Let it sit for a few mins, and it will thicken a little. You can also use lemon juice instead of vinegar if you prefer.
