Had To Use Up My Buttermilk

My husband had bought buttermilk to make Chicken Fried Steak. He usually uses buttermilk whenever he has to bread and fry something. This leaves with leftover buttermilk to use up. Pinterest to the rescue. I found a few recipes to try.

 I really did not want to make anything sweet, so first I found this Buttermilk Mac and Cheese. This recipe had eggs in it, which made to overall result a more firm custard like consistency.  It was alright. Not the best mac and cheese. When my son, who devours mac and cheese, did not go for seconds; That means this recipe was not a winner. I added Ritz Crackers on top. If you like a creamy mac amd cheese stay away from this. If you are into the more custard type texture, then feel free to give it a try. The reviews for this recipe are mixed. I for sure won't make this again.
 This next recipe however is a winner! Buttermilk Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins.  At this point it is the next day after I made the mac and cheese and still had buttermilk left. I did not care anymore if I made a sweet item. Unlike the mac and cheese, I like how these muffins turned out. What is there not to love about chocolate and peanut butter. This recipe does make 24 cupcake size muffins, which was a concern as there is only 3 people in the household.  I will make these again if I find myself with extra buttermilk again.
I still had buttermilk left after making the muffins. I ended up using the last of it to make buttermilk busciuts.



  1. I'm no fan of buttermilk, but it's SO good in baked goods!
