"The fresh blueberries in this recipe can be easily swapped out for frozen ones: Use them as they are without defrosting them. You can also swap in strawberries, rhubarb, or apples and orange zest, depending on the season. To make a quick DIY (plant-based) buttermilk, add 2 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice to a measuring cup with enough milk to make a total of 120 ml. Let it stand for 5 min., then use it directly. The dough can be prepared the day before, baked the next day, and frozen for up to 3 months."
