I am making cupcake for my son's daycare. I am just making funfettie cupcake from the box and not adding anything special, but I had a coupon for a free thing of almond milk so I was thinking about using the milk inplace of the water. Since milk will have carbs and protiens and such VS water that has none would it change the texture by much?
If your making that for people that are not used to the taste of almond milk I wouldn't do it. I have done that...however, it was for either me or people that use almond milk & not cow milk. The texture is slightly different & depending on the other ingredients that you use it may change the recipe, the way it rises, time to cook, whether or not it stays as one pieces or falls apart. So you would definitely have to do test run first.
I am speaking from experience & if it's for the daycare...you also need to be careful if a child has allergies to almonds. Most cupcakes (from stores) pretty much has the same ingredients & parents has fed them to their kids...but would not know to tell if their allergic because of different ingredients...hope that made sense.
I am sorry, I do not have an answer. But that is a good question! I will be watching this post for an answer too.
If you try it, let me know the result... thanks...
Ive had to make vegan cakes using Almond Milk and had problems with it taking too long to bake. If you use regular soy milk, it will work much better than the almond. That is, if you have to have it vegan. If your only using it because you have a coupon I would suggest using regular milk, whether it be 1% or 2% then the almond milk. But if you do go ahead and use it, make sure there are no nut allergies like the other person suggested, and add instant pudding to the mix to make the texture and taste better.
I tasted the almond milk and although it's good, it's not as sweet as I thought it would taste and it had a very "nut" taste vs extract that has a sweeter taste (to me at least) so I just did the water. I still want to bake some it with it, but I'll have to find another project
i have had a problem using almond milk in buttercream
DO NOT use any nut product if you're making it for a daycare. I know for sure our daycare is 100% nut free because you don't know what kids might be allergic to nuts. We are not allowed to bring anything nut related. Period.
