Whole Wheat Flour

I’ve experimented with this recipe using 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of 1 cup each of whole wheat and all-purpose. As whole wheat flour is a bit resistant to rising, I recommended mixing it with 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

Buttermilk Substitute

If you find yourself without buttermilk, you can easily make your own at home. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Let it sit about 10 minutes, or until it curdles slightly.
