Cooking Tips

  • If you don't have buttermilk, you can make a substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk and letting it sit for 5 minutes.
  • For a softer crust, brush the top of the bread with melted butter as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Storage and Serving

  • To store the bread, make sure it is completely cooled before placing it in an airtight container or a bread bag.
  • If the bread starts to become stale, you can revive it by lightly toasting it.
