Making Buttermilk

If you don't have buttermilk on hand when a recipe asks for it you can simply make your own.

To do this, add 3 teaspoons strained fresh lemon juice to 250ml (1 cup/9fl oz) of full-cream milk. It's perfect to use in scones, banana bread and muffins!

The only thing to be aware of is that this mixture will be thinner in consistency than commercially made buttermilk so when using more than 125ml (½ cup/4fl oz) use 1 tablespoon less of your homemade buttermilk for every 125ml (½ cup/4fl oz) in the recipe so that the consistency of the batter isn't affected.
