*If you do not have fresh buttermilk, you can substitute 1 cup of water and 4 Tablespoons Saco Buttermilk powder instead. It works very well. Buttermilk powder is found in most larger grocery stores, either near the powdered milk section or sometimes in the baking section. It is a great item to have on hand.
