I have been asked so many times how to substitute the ingredients in my recipes to suit my vegan readers.
I hear you my friends, yes I do.
In fact, I wrote about how to make a vegan egg substitution in my vegan scones post.
So today I will share the most straightforward substitution ever, how to make vegan buttermilk.
Buttermilk In Baking
I wrote a post about how to make buttermilk.
Basically, buttermilk creates lighter, softer, and more tender baked goods by breaking down the gluten in the batter, when it reacts to baking soda. It also helps to rise bread in quick bread recipes.
Homemade Vegan Buttermilk
You can use non-dairy milk like coconut, soy, or almond milk.
1 cup non-dairy milk (250 ml) + 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar = homemade vegan buttermilk
Very easy, isn't it?
