Prepare homemade buttermilk using 1 cup of whole milk and one tablespoon of vinegar and combining the two ingredients. Give it a good stir and let it sit for five minutes. The vinegar in the milk will react and curdle resulting to buttermilk. You can use this mixture to any cake recipes that call for buttermilk.
