Okay, so right now I'm thinking of a way to open up this entry with a 'punch'. So I am currently looking for a fitting 'milk quote' (weird eh?) on : : http://thinkexist.com/quotes/with/keyword/milk/
Oooh, yay, I found one : :
“I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.” --- Woody Allen
Now, let us all be thankful of baking where you can still consume milk, laugh and it still will not come out of your nose ☺.
WARNING: You may choke instead...

Okay, so milk basically just adds moisture to your cake or muffin.
Too little : : texture = dry
Too much : : Why hello pancake!

[[ The substitution side of things ]]
Because milk's only purpose in baking is to provide moisture, the main thing we have to look out for when substituting milk is something that provides that same or similar extent of moisture.
: : Useful ingredients to substitute milk with : : 1 cup | : |
♦ 1 cup Greek yogurt
NOTE: Do NOT use any type of yogurt! Greek yogurt is the only variety of yogurt that does not separate when heated.
♦ 3/4 cup cream, 1/4 cup water (combined)
♦ 1 1/2 cup water (many of the dry ingredients absorb water quickly)
