I had a problem this week that I've run into many times before. I would buy a jug of buttermilk for a recipe and still have quite a bit left over. I can not tell you how many times I had to pour buttermilk down the drain because I only needed 1/2 cup for something.
I know that you can sour your own milk by adding vinegar to it, but when I'm making buttermilk pancakes I like to get the real stuff.
When I went to get my buttermilk for pancakes this week, the store only have 1/2 galleon jugs. I only needed 2 cups.
I was determined to use up the buttermilk before it went bad, but what else could I make. My normal go to recipes are my pancakes and scones. But scones only use 1/2 cup and I don't really need that many scones.
So I turned to pinterest.
Check out these get pins for recipes using buttermilk.
I printed out a few and gave them a try.
We did the buttermilk muffins
and the buttermilk chocolate bread.
Both were wonderful and we actually made a second batch of the muffins.
I have my eye on one of the buttermilk pound cake recipes to try next.
What do you do with your left over buttermilk?
