Do you know those days when you're craving some waffles, biscuits or perhaps a fluffy cake BUT you open the fridge and there's no buttermilk? You always end up thinking to yourself "I'll just use plain milk instead and call it a day". Well yea, you could definitely do that and the recipe will most likely work. The catch though is that the recipe won't work as well as it could.
Buttermilk is sour and the acidity from it, breaks down proteins and makes everything softer and fluffier, bottom line, it makes things much better!
Now, having buttermilk always available in the fridge isn't the usual scenario, so here is a quick and easy fix to that problem. No, this is not technically Buttermilk but the acidity from the lemon will do the job just as well!
