How much buttermilk: 1 1/2 to 2 cups, or 1 to 1 1/2 cups?

List at the top is "1 1/2 cups buttermilk" then instructions say "add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk... maybe the additional 1/2 cup". Because it says "the" not "an" additional 1/2 cup, and because everything seemed plenty moist to me, I'm wondering if it's up to 1 1/2 cups total, and we're supposed to add only 1 cup initially?

It's always hard to give a specific amount of any liquid additions to mixes for things like biscuits or scones. A lot depends on how dry the flour is, or how much moisture is left in the kale. So I'd start with the lesser measurement, and go from there. If it is too dry to work with, add in more a few spoonfuls at a time. And if it is too wet after you add liquid, simply add in a few spoons of flour. If you don't have the extra bit of buttermilk, you can always use regular milk with a teaspoon of vinegar added in. In fact, you can sour regular milk with vinegar and use that in place of the buttermilk.
