We’ve all been there – we make something that requires buttermilk and we end up with more than we need. So here’s a delicious collection of 22 ways to use leftover buttermilk that solves all our buttermilk woes.

Ways to Use Leftover Buttermilk

Over time I’ve learned to make my own buttermilk when I know I only need a cup: just mix a cup of milk and a tablespoon of lemon juice, stir then let sit in room temperature for 30 minutes.

But this is not for those times. This is for those times when we buy a carton of buttermilk with grand buttermilk plans that just did not happen! So whether you have less than a cup or more than 2 cups left, you’ll find a recipe in here that needs the perfect amount of buttermilk you have on hand.
