Substitute for Buttermilk

I am going to make the cheese biscuit recipe and don't have buttermilk, would like to avoid a trip the store if possible, I understand you can add vinegar or lemon juice to milk but can you use yogurt or sour cream and get the same effect as buttermilk?

According to the Cook's Thesaurus you can use yogurt or sour cream as a substitute for buttermilk. I'm sure it will affect the texture to some degree. http://www.foodsubs.com...

if youre making biscuits i would definitely go the splash of vinegar in milk route. You really need a liquidy liquid to get them to set up correctly. The yogurt or sour cream is typically substituted for flavor purposes, but as was said above, the texture would definitely change.

I regularly use half plain yoghurt with half milk as a substitute for buttermilk. Works for muffins, biscuits (I'd call them scones) and other things. The important thing is to get something of a similar consistency, and with enough acidity to counteract any baking soda/bicarbonate of soda in the recipe.

Thank you, the recipe that was posted calls for baking powder and no baking soda. Thanks to everyone for the help.
