A question about a recipe: Vera Obias' Cheddar & Black Pepper Cornbread

I have a question about the recipe "Vera Obias' Cheddar & Black Pepper Cornbread" from Genius Recipes. Could I sub coconut milk or whole milk in for buttermilk? Would that impact the lightness/density of the bread?

Hi. If you have whole milk on hand, add a tablespoon or white vinegar to a cup of milk and let it stand for a few minutes. That will produce a reasonable substitute for baking. But if you'll be grocery shopping anyway, pick up some buttermilk.

Hi! If you're going to substitute coconut milk or whole milk for the buttermilk, I would suggest mixing it first with a teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. The acid in the buttermilk reacts with baking soda, helping to leaven and aid the cornbread in rising. Hope this helps!
