AI was wondering has anyone ever tried vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk in a cake recipe and if so how did it turn out
I'm assuming by your avatar you may be UK? Almond milk is not cows milk...and vanilla flavoured non dairy is another beast entirely. I suggest you google the implications of vegan based "milk" in recipes that do not involve eggs butter milk yoghurt etc....on the other hand you sound a bit avante garde..whats the story?
AI drank it and enjoy the flavor I was just wondering if anyone has bake with it, I'm from USA
Yes its lovely but it does not perform in baking the way that a little cows milk does?
What are you making?
AI've used almond milk in a chocolate mud cake with hazelnut meal. It had to be dairy, soy and gluten free. I actually thought the almond milk enhanced the nut flavour in the cake. It wasn't vanilla flavoured almond milk though! It certainly behaved like a cow's milk in that recipe, no issues. I was really surprised at how delicious it was, I'm a bit old-fashioned with cakes and don't generally love "special diet" cake recipes. I'm from Australia though, our almond milk might be different to yours.
I'm with winniemog, I too have used almond milk as a substitute in mud cake , I usually use coconut milk but thought I would try the almond for something different. It was lovely. However Aussie mudcakes are pretty bombproof when it comes to mucking around with the recipe. I get all sorts of dietary requests these days so am always experimenting.
Lovely in veggie / vegan recipes just wasn't sure what magic OP wanted in a Viccie Sponge lol
I love to drink vanilla almond milk. I've used it in buttercream frosting, but haven't baked with it. I didn't care for the flavor it gave my buttercream. It was too much of a "nutty" flavor for me. Although, when I drink it, I don't feel that it has a huge nut flavor.
