I am transferring all of the recipes from my soon to be defunct food blog to this blog! Here's a good one!
I’m pretty sure that buttermilk is full of magic or the tears of unicorns or the sparkle of a shooting star, because it makes everything that much more amazing!
You can totally buy buttermilk at a regular grocery store (which I do quite often), but it is super, super easy to make your own. Naturally, you can get all you need at Aldi
Ready for the most confusing use of arrows ever?
Here’s what you do!
pour one tablespoon of vinegar…
into a 1 cup liquid measuring cup.
pour milk to the one cup line.
give it a stir.
let it sit for 5 minutes.
Ta-Da! It’s buttermilk.
If you’re feeling crazy, you could even use lemon juice.
I usually just eyeball the 1 tablespoon of vinegar and always end up with a little more which is just fine.
Now, about The Best Muffins Ever.
I have clearly been living under an internet rock, because I only just discovered Sally’s Baking Addiction. I googled “chocolate chip muffins” (for Muffin Monday, of course 😉 ) and her recipe was one of the first that came up.
I made them (following the directions for regular sized muffins) using the buttermilk substitute for the milk, and they were seriously, seriously amazing.
