Bob's Redmill Buttermilk Powder Volume
Bob's Redmill label lacks common
conversions for this product, so I will provide some estimated, more
commonly used volumes here.
Firstly. You might ask, "Why use such a degraded powder when you
can buy fresh (cultured) buttermilk at the store?"
The store bought buttermilk is not a true buttermilk as it's cultured
from milk. Attaining real buttermilk is difficult unless you live
nearby a creamery. As a next best substitute while attaining best
taste, this buttermilk powder seems more ideal for most baking
needs. Real buttermilk has a very different texture compared to
cultured and is also much sweeter.
Enough with the rambling, here's the estimated conversions.
