Buttermilk substitute for cream?

Hello! Would buttermilk be a fair substitute here for the cream? I have some in the fridge, however it's only 1%.

Emma, how about using total 2 cups heavy cream instead of 3 cups for the whole recipe?
Would we still get a rich taste without quite do much cream?

Hi AlexJane! Buttermilk wouldn't work as a swap in this recipe—but here's a great collection of dishes that use buttermilk: https://food52.com/blog/25279-best-buttermilk-recipes

I don’t think I would. But three cups of heavy cream...yikes!
