jessie981, I'm assuming that you don't have any buttermilk?

Suitable substitutes are yoghurt or milk soured with lemon juice or white vinegar (1 tbsp per cup milk). :-))

Buttermilk in Banana cake makes it lovely a moist can get it at pak n save in the fridge next to the sour cream and cream cheese haven't found it a countdown but not sure about foodtown.

I haven't baked it yet as checked the recipe & it said bake 1 hr @ 275! That seems very hot for a cake. Got the recipe from here.

jessie981, I've had two thoughts re the oven temperature in that recipe... . .

1. That the 275 is 275°F = 140°C - not hot enough IMO
2. That it is a typo i. e. it should read 375 - °F which is 190°C.

I suggest that you use the usual temperature for cooking cakes- 180°C (350°F).

Re the buttermilk - I see that like myself, you're here in Christchurch so you should have no problems in finding buttermilk in any of the supermarkets. As advised in #3 you'll find buttermilk in the chillers - look for a 600ml carton with the brand name Tararua or a plastic bottle of a similar size produced by Karikaas of Loburn. :-))

I can't digest buttermilk so I always substitute it with soured milk.

Butter milk is overpriced, used milk soured with lemon juice, gives the same results
