Tips

Substitution for Buttermilk

Substitution for Buttermilk

For every cup of buttermilk called for, use the same amount of sweet milk, except replace 1 Tbsp of the sweet milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes, stir well. Milk will have clabbered and will work as a perfect substitution for buttermilk for baking purposes. It is cheaper and you are not stuck trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the quart of buttermilk you are never going to use, that is unless you like to drink the stuff!


Counting Your Eggs

Counting Your Eggs

Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cakes are my favorite and quite versatile. One thing I like to do is add an extra egg to the mix. My cakes are always more moist, and will stay that way until the cake is gone. I have found this works in wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and just-no-reason cakes. I have lived in the California Deserts, Virginia humidity, and the northern mid-west cooler weather. No matter where, adding the extra egg works well and makes all the difference!
