HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK—Buttermilk improves the flavour and texture of some baked goods, increasing rise and giving them a tangy taste. It is also essential when using baking soda as a raising agent. Buttermilk can be difficult to find in some places so, this substitute, acidified milk, works well for leavening and tenderising, though it won’t taste as tangy.
