Leftover Buttermilk

I made a recipe with buttermilk last night and have quite a bit left. What are some good recipes to help me use that up?

Pancakes, biscuits, cornbread. These are the first things that come to mind for me.

As for using it up, buttermilk keeps for a very, very long time. If you wanted, you could freeze it in one cup amounts, which is often the quantity called for in a recipe.

In addition to Katie's suggestions, Quick Chocolate Cake TNT

If you bought cultured buttermilk, you could also use some of it as starter for sour cream, creme fraiche, or quark.

You could drink it, but I don't like the flavour of buttermilk

Pancakes Waffles muffins, biscuits corn bread. Like Katie said.

You can make a stack of waffles and freeze. Reheat in the toaster or oven.

Buttermilk freezes well. Pour out in measurement sizes you are likely to use. Once frozen, put the blocks in a freezer bag and take out as needed. There. Done.

I also use leftover buttermilk to make homemade ranch dressing:

I'm with Katie, freeze it in recipe sized containers!

Also try making your own buttermilk substitute in the future.

Put 1 T white vinegar, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice in a glass measuring cup and fill to the 1 cup mark with milk. Wait 5 minutes and use in any recipe calling for a cup of buttermilk.

This is what I do because I never remember to purchase buttermilk.

That's what I usually do too. I am unwilling to pay as much as they charge for cultured buttermilk. If I know I will need some, I might culture some milk with small dollop of sour cream or quark (the unheated kind).

I wouldn't have any problem just drinking it up. I love buttermilk!

My late father's favorite was Southern milkshake. Cornbread crumbled in Buttermilk. It's not bad if you like buttermilk.

When I remember to buy or I will use the vinegar trick, If I have any purchased milk left I freeze it in 1 cup portions, I use a ziplock freezer bag so I can lay them flat in the freezer till frozen then I can put then in the door shelf of the freezer for easy storing. It works out great.
