15 Dessert Recipes That Use Buttermilk

The whole family will love these buttermilk dessert recipes!

Buttermilk is one of those ingredients that makes almost anything you add it to just a little bit better. Baked goods especially can benefit from the tangy flavor and fluffy texture that buttermilk can provide.

That's why we've rounded up some of our all-time favorite dessert recipes that use buttermilk. There's something for everyone in this list of sweet treats. Whether you're a diehard fan of sugary baked goods that double as breakfast foods (we see you!) or you always sneak back for a slice of Grandma's buttermilk pie, you'll find something to adore in this collection.

These desserts with buttermilk are also ideal if you're trying to use up the last of a carton of buttermilk. Most of the recipes call for around 1 cup of buttermilk, which is just how much you might have leftover if you made pancakes this weekend.

Now keep scrolling and enjoy this list of comforting dessert recipes!
