Substitution
If you don't have buttermilk on hand, use 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar plus enough milk to equal 1 cup.
Success
The great thing about quick breads is they are so quick to fix. They don't need a lot of mixing, just enough so the wet and dry ingredients are combined. Even though the batter may look lumpy, when it's baked, the bread will be light and tender.
