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!


Kalua mocha pound cake (bundt cake)

Kalua mocha pound cake (bundt cake)

Use the Duncan Hines pound cake recipe (that takes yellow cake and vanilla instant pudding. Add 1/4 cup Kalua (or other coffee-flavored liqueur) and reduce water to 1/4 cup. Use chocolate or chocolate fudge instant pudding instead of vanilla. Bake in bundt cake pan. Cook for about 60 minutes. When completely cool, dust with powdered sugar or top with glaze of Kahlua and powdered sugar. Also makes great miniature bundt cakes (cupcakes).
