What does buttermilk do in baking?
Buttermilk does a few things in baked goods! It adds a nice tang that normal milk doesn’t. It helps quick breads rise better and also works with the gluten giving your final product a soft texture.
Can you use regular milk instead of buttermilk in baking?
Buttermilk has an acidic property that regular milk doesn’t and it’s not recommended to substitute regular milk in place of buttermilk.
What can I use if I don’t have buttermilk?
Don’t have buttermilk? Not a problem? Simply add 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar per 1 cup of regular milk and mix together. Let it sit for a few minutes, stir again, and you have “homemade buttermilk”!

- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk

- Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 8" by 4" loaf pan or line with parchment paper.

- Slowly add buttermilk, beating until smooth. If using an electric mixer, make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl so everything gets mixed together.
- Pour into prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Transfer bread to cooling rack to cool. Serve plain or with butter and jam.
This peanut butter bread is delicious! I didn’t have any buttermilk so I did as suggested and used a tablespoon of white vinegar in milk. It worked perfectly!
