    Butter milk substitute:

    2 cups milk (full,non or low fat)
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    let set for 10 min. it may curdle, that's what you want.
    ----------------------------------
    Sour Cream substitutes:

    yogurt, full fat, low fat and no fat is okay. I often use this when I don't want the fat because non fat sour cream has too much sugar and fillers in it.

    or

    pureed cottage cheese add a little vinegar to flavor.

    or

    3 parts cream cheese to 1 part buttermilk to consistancy in a pinch.

    for a friend:

    "What can I use to substitute "sour cream"? I can only find regular cream (full-fat cream) and plain yoghurt here in this small towon in Malaysia. I have many recipes that I use very often that call for "sour cream". I find it's rather difficult for me to bake or cook without it. There is no buttermilk either...

    I am open for all suggestion... Thanks."
