I have been asked so many times on 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 on how to make a vegan egg substitution in my vegan scones post.
So today I'm going to share the easiest substitution ever, how to make vegan buttermilk.
