How to Make Sour Milk if you ran out of Buttermilk 

The easy and quick way to make your own sour milk

When your recipe calls for 1 cup of sour milk, all you need to do would be to add 1 tablespoon of vinegar or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a measuring cup and then you will have to fill it up with regular milk up to the 1 cup mark.  Give it a good stir and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and it will become as buttermilk and ready to be used.


Are donuts and Doughnuts the same?

Doughnut is the original, generally preferred spelling of the word. It is more common in the United States and vastly more common internationally. Donut is an Americanized, shortened version of donut that isn’t incorrect, but it is much less common.

Are Doughnuts British?

Doughnuts are a British invention according to historians who have unearthed they were invented by the English upper classes. Americans say they invented them, but the Dutch disagree and have long claimed the squidgy, sugary treats as their own.
