    This message is for rachi. Buttermilk in America is a sour type of milk. The acid reacts with the baking soda to help leaven the cake. You can make the equivalent by combining 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar (white or cidar) with 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon of regular milk. Let it sit 10 minutes and then stir. Another substitution is 1 cup of plain yogurt. Happy baking.

    Hello your recipe sound good but the problem is I'm from England. I like to know what is Buttermilk? I've never heard of it in England, can I use normal milk instead of buttermilk?

    Thanks for reading.
