I've seen that in the stores... Is there any reason a recipe wouldn't work with a lower fat milk or buttermilk? I mean I guess it won't taste as rich and whatnot - but I do try to make things as...

Ah - I was using my mom's old copy - definitely not the 2006 version. That makes more sense that it'd have you reduce the baking powder. I really am not crazy, I think?

I've always wondered about this... Does it taste at all different from normal buttermilk? It is a pain to keep buttermilk in the fridge and worry about it expiring - so the powdered stuff would be...

1.5 t baking powder
0.5 t salt

Couldn't the moisture come from something else like milk? What do you mean exactly by depth?

That recipe sounds pretty solid - but look at how little baking powder they use! I'd expect maybe a bit more than double the leavening. Won't those end up really dense and flat?

I understand club soda is acidic - is it as acidic as buttermilk? How much baking soda do you need to balance the ph?
