If you've ever been in the middle of a recipe and realized you're out of buttermilk, don't fret – we've been there plenty of times. Faking buttermilk is easy. Whether you're making flaky buttermilk biscuits, a sweet buttermilk pie, or crispy fried chicken (and the list goes on), all you'll need to make your own buttermilk is regular milk and either lemon juice or vinegar. Thanks to this quick substitution from our friends at Real Simple, no one will ever know that you cheated in your Southern cooking.
