  • Buttermilk is easy to substitute if you do not have any on hand. Simply place 2 tablespoons of vinegar (either white or cider) or lemon juice in a measuring cup and fill with milk to the two-cup line. Allow this mixture to sit for 5 – 10 minutes before using in your recipe.[4]
  • To keep the fritters warm while you are making more, place them on a cookie sheet or shallow baking dish. Put them on the middle rack of your oven, preheated to 200 degrees.[3]
