Kitchen Hacks. Have you ever heard of such a thing? If not, then you are missing out. A kitchen hack is a simple little trick to make your life easier while in the kitchen.
One of my favorite kitchen hacks of all time, is homemade buttermilk. You know those recipes, like Buttermilk Pancakes, Blueberry Scones, or Strawberry-Walnut Bread that have random buttermilk as an ingredient and you think you can’t make them because you don’t have buttermilk in the fridge?
Well, I have a solution for you: homemade buttermilk made with ease in under 2 minutes!
All you need is one cup of milk and 1 Tbsp. of lemon juice (above) to make your very own buttermilk at home that’s easy and fresh. Perfect for your holiday baking!

Dear Jen, This is a helpful hint for sure. I learned this not all that long ago, so I am sure many will be grateful to know this helpful hint. Blessings, Catherine
Great tip! I’ve done this so many times when I’ve run out of buttermilk! Pinned
Hi, first thank you for the great tip. I had a question regarding storage. How long will this product keep in the fridge?
Hi! It would probably last for 1-2 days in the fridge. Thanks for the comment! 🙂
JOHN KLINE says
I have read that vinegar can also be used.
You can definitely use vinegar in place of the lemon juice, John! Thanks for the comment!
Patty P says
One can also use white vinegar instead of the lemon juice – same measurements, same result.
YES! Very true, Patty!
