Yes, you can substitute. Buttermilk is low in fat when compared to milk and gives a light and airy texture to the bread or muffin. It also helps you easily digest the nutrients from the flour you are using. However, you may have to keep the following in mind when substituting buttermilk for milk:

·     Because of the acid content of buttermilk, you will require less baking powder or baking soda.

·     Try half teaspoon of baking soda for every cup of buttermilk.
