Today, I made Chocolate Chip Banana Cake. A firefighter that I worked with 20 years ago gave the recipe to me. It has bananas, chocolate chips, buttermilk, and the usual eggs, flour, sugar, etc. It is awesome frozen and then served with vanilla ice cream.

I don't see why not. I often change out sour cream for milk. But do expect a change in texture of the finished product!

Orange Rolls, sweet yeast dough with orange zest in the dough. Butter, sugar and more zest spread on, rolled and cut, laid in pan to bake then infused with a simple sugar syrup. Yes, not a diet food but melt in your mouth delicious! giving them to my brothers and sis-in-laws with a few missing, husband loves them too.

I am not sure, but here is what they said on About.com

Buttermilk substitute for regular milk
