      To make buttermilk use a dairy product with a little acidity added... milk with a spoonful of lemon juice or white vinegar does the job quite nicely. This mixture won’t get as thick and creamy as buttermilk, but it will perform its role in the batter just as well. Incidentally, yogurt or sour cream thinned with milk (or plain water, just in a pinch) also works well as buttermilk substitutes. Good luck 🍀 I hope this helps.
