You can make buttermilk by mixing milk and vinegar. A fail-safe soda bread recipe!
I love soda bread, but never have buttermilk in the house. So this recipe was great! I wasn't sure if the milk & vinegar mix would work, but the bread was lovely, light on the inside & crunchy on the outside. Will definitely be making again! - 04 Jan 2014
I have tried several soda bread recipes but this is by far the best. Excellent bread and so easy to make. I used buttermilk as I had some in the fridge that needed used up. Will make this again. - 28 Jun 2014
I found that one batch of the milk/vinegar mix made two loaves, so I did . I also didn't have a tablespoon measure so I think I put too much sugar in, but it still tastes gorgeous and is a great contrast with some salted butter . I maaay have eaten most of the first loaf before it was even cold - 03 Sep 2015
