The person that asked about eggs is not the OP. Thanks to all of you. I never knew dark chocolate was dairy free. I learned something new. :)

Just be careful with that one - not all dark chocolate is dairy free, generally the higher percentage of cocoa it contains the less chance there is that it will have milk products in it. I recently found that out as my bub has been diagnosed as dairy allergic.

 

Also because the same protein can be found in soy, depending on how sensitive you are soy can cause the same reaction as milk in some people, a lot of the products that don't have cows milk will use soy in its place (including a lot of dairy free chocolates). I'm sure the client would have let you know if that was the case with them but it's just something to be aware of.

 

Also does anyone know of a cocoa powder in Australia that does not contain dairy or say on the packaging that it may contain traces of dairy? Thanks.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

The soy I was aware of. My nephew was allergic to both as a baby. I will definitely make sure to check packages though.

I generally sub the milk for almond milk. You can search through here, there are some recipes. You can also start your own thread and ask if people will share theirs.

As BCT said you can normally use any other kind of milk as a substitute for cows milk. I find it really easy to make a coconut milk when required and it is whiter than almond milk. My favourite way to make it is to use 1 cup of desiccated coconut (I use M'Kkenzies) - add to that 2 & 1/2 cups of water that has boiled in the kettle then been cooled for a minute. Let that sit covered for round 15 - 20 minutes so that the coconut softens a bit and the water is not too hot. Then pop in the food processor and blend for a few minutes (I normally add a little honey and vanilla to taste while blending) then pour through a fine sieve to remove the solids. Use as required in place of cows milk. Note that if it is left to sit in the fridge for long the coconut oil will separate from the coconut water and you will have a liquid and a solid (not so great if you poured yours into a tall glass water bottle I found out lol)

Hope you find that useful cakesrocks
