I'm planning to make Sharon's chocolate cake recipe from her site:
I don't think we have non-dairy creamer powder here in Oz. Does anyone know if I can just use milk powder? Or is there anything else that's similar?
I've googled til I can't google any more.
I don't know if I'd use just milk powder since the creamer has other things in it...fats...various mysterious ingredients... plus the cake recipe already has milk in it... I'm trying to figure out what the creamer is supposed to do but I am stumped!
I'd e-mail Sharon and ask if she has any ideas.
Do you have liquid coffee creamer? You can use that as well, just heat it before you put it in. I think she uses it for several reasons, one because it's hot which helps blend the shortening, two because of the flavor, very mellow and I like it because I can keep the dry creamer in the cupboard and just mix it up when I need it. Also I like to use the different flavored creamers if they compliment the cake flavor.
I'm sure you could PM her and see if there is anything she thinks would be a good substitute. She's super helpful.
non-dairy creamer powder = coffeemate
[Woolworths have their own generic product]
But, you will find it difficult to find a flavoured one
