Buttermilk: 8 fl oz of buttermilk can be easily replaced by your favorite soy/rice/nut milk plus 1 Tbl acid of choice (lemon juice, apple cider vinegar etc).
Milk: Um, just use your favorite non-dairy milk. My favorite is my homemade cashew milk. It’s creamy, fatty and delicious.
Butter : 1 stick of butter is the same as 4 oz of butter. Butter is magically weight-volume equivalent (a cup is 8 oz). For 4 oz of butter, substitute:
- 1/3 cup oil (this is the option that is the least noticable because you are not losing a lot of fat content).
- 1/3 cup fruit puree (puree prunes (1/2 cup prunes + 1/4 cup h20-best for chocolate dishes) applesauce, pureed bananas or even whipped silken tofu. If it’s too low-fat for your liking, add some oil in place of the fruit.
