  13. Mix flour, 1 cup sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in

  28. Note: For North American users, "sour milk" is not milk that's gone

  29. bad: it's milk which has been purposely soured by adding buttermilk

  30. and letting it incubate for a day in a warm place (at home), or (when made commercially) inoculated with a similar culture, usually

  31. something like Streptococcus lactis, Lactobacillus cremoris, or another of the "milk-friendly" bacteria. "Sour milk" made this

  32. way is thicker than normal milk, but not as thick as sour cream

  33. (which it resembles in taste). For those of us in countries where

  34. commercially made sour milk / sauermilch or its variants can't be

  35. bought in the supermarket, buttermilk is the closest substitute.
