    Lactose free recipes...

    Hi all!
    I brought some great Zuch bread and Cranberry bread into work today. One of the guys asked if it had any dairy in it like Milk, Egg, Butter...he has lactose allergies and another person at work has nut allergies. So, how can I make a special treat without butter and eggs? I know I can easily leave out Nuts but dairy???
    Please help! I know someone here has a great recipe for a wonderful treat!

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE - remember just because you leave NUTS out, it doesn't mean that you still might not have some in what your baking. And when your dealing with LACTOSE allergies, they sometimes use NUT products (nuts, nut oils). You also have to read info on box or bag of items being used, because they will put things like - This product is made in a plant that uses nuts. If you see anything like that it is NOT nut free. Sorry trying to be nice, is NOT as easy as it used to be. Good luck

    You can use applesauce in place of milk. I and my son have very severe allergies to lactose. Use oleo/margarine rather then real butter and you will be fine (as there is very very little lactose in it) and eggs do not contain lactose at all. So unless they have allergies to eggs or are vegan.. eggs are okay. When I was in the hospital for surgery, the dietician said that the use of oleo/margarine for cooking was okay.. because you do not really use much to start with and it only has a very small % in it to start with.

    -Nowadays most margarines have no milk solids in them; read labels to make sure.
    -Most quick bread recipes have lots of butter or oil, and can be reduced by as much as half with no loss of moistness, only calories!
    -Coconut oil is a good substitute for other fats in baking; WalMart and Trader Joe's carry it. It's solid in the jar but liquifies at 78, and does not taste like coconut. It's good for sauteing too. It is more costly than butter or other oils though.
    -Eggs are not dairy, and have no lactose.
    -If you use a mix, check to see if whey has been added, as that is often used in baked goods and mixes to improve texture and color, and whey is the part of milk that contains most of the lactose!
    -I'm lactose intolerant also, and the lactase enzyme pills (e.g. Lactaid) work very well, but too much dairy still affects me even when I take them. Most cheeses don't bother me because the whey is removed in making them.

    Use canned pumpkin! I use 2 step (add water)Angel Food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple , cook in a 9x12 pan or , abt 35 to 40 mins. I know this is made with egg whites, so remember that part.

    The pumpkin will make your bread, muffins, cake a bit denser but it works goo.d.

    You can use soy milk in place of milk, and soy flour will replace an egg. I just made an awesome Sweet Potato-Cranberry-Walnut bread. I don't think it had any milk in it but I did the soy thing instead of an egg and it came out fine.

    ETA - here is the link to the recipe
    http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cranber...2fdefault.aspx

    I did not make the cream cheese spread that goes on it. I did it in a Bundt pan in the microwave for 6.5 minutes.

    The next time I made it, I added the whole can of sweet potatos, used the soy flour instead of an egg, added a few extra spices (nutmeg, ginger) and did it 7.5 minutes in the microwave. And used walnuts instead of almonds or what it called for.

    I cook on a woodstove so in the summer I like to do baking in the microwave.

    Cheese is a lactose free food.

    Cheese and lactose

    I know it's supposed to be but it's one of the worst foods for me with my lactose intolerance. Much as I love it, I avoid all cheese except American. There are great cheeses out there that are made from non-dairy ingredients, though. I can't remember the brand but one has smoked mozzarella slices that I love and use to make cheese grits, lasagna and lots of other stuff that just has to be cheesy.

    Great ideas!

    For someone with nut allergies, soybeans can also cause a reaction. If you do use a soy product, please let people know it's one of the ingredients.

    Many people are also soy protein intolerant (effects are similar to lactose intolerance).

    You could also use rice milk. I picked some up instead of soy milk at the store last time, the two packages are the same color - drives me nuts. I wanted soy. Rice milk is OK but does not taste the same.

    This is the recipe that a friend gave me when my son had to go milk free for a while. He grew out of the allergy but I still use the recipe as a quick tasty treat.
    BROWNIES
    2 cups white sugar,1/2 cup cocoa,1/2 tsp. salt,2tsp. Vanilla,1 cup vegetable oil, 4 eggs, 1/4 cup cold water, 1 &1/2 cups all-purpose flour.

    Mix sugar, cocoa, salt together in a bowl. Add oil, eggs, water, vanilla and mix well until smooth. Add the flour and mix until there are no lumps and batter is smooth. Grease a 9X13 baking pan/dish and pour in the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes if in a metal pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes if in a glass pan.
    You can ice them when they cool but we usually eat them un-iced.

    Hi Scuba- there are so many great recipes out there for dairy free baking!

    You mentioned zucchini bread.
    This is a Beth Kidder recipe:

    1.5 cups grated Zucchini (about 0.5 lb)
    2 cups flour
    1 cup sugar (I would use less)
    1 TSP baking powder
    0.5 tsp cinnamon
    0.5 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    0.5 cup olive oil
    0.5 cup water
    0.5 TSP vanilla

    Scrub and coarsely grate zucchini. Preheat oven to 350 and grease (non-dairy margarine or spray) a 9x5 incl loaf pan.
    SIft dry ingredients into a large bowl and add zucchini.
    In another bowl mix eggs, oil, water and vanilla and add all at one to dry ingredients. Stir just until all dry ingredients are moistened. Turn into prepared pan.
    Bake 1 to 1.25 hours. Cool in pan.

    She also has a recipe for cranberry bread, which is similar but uses orange juice and zest instead of water, only one egg, and has more baking powder. (It also has nuts)

    Here is another basic one to get you going!

    Muffins (12 x 2.5 inch muffins)

    2 cups flour
    0.25 cup sugar (I use less, but that's me...)
    1 TBSP baking powder
    0.5 TSP salt
    6 TBSP oil (I would use coconut fat or, for nut free I would use olive oil as I don't trust highlighly processed seed oils)
    0.75 cup water
    2 eggs


    Preheat oven to 375 and grease muffin pan with non-dairy shortening or spray.
    Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into bowl. Make well in centre.
    In another bowl, mix oil, water and eggs together (they won't really blend- just jiggle them around and do your best and all will be well!)
    Pour the wet mix into the dry mix and stir just until all the flour is moistened.
    Spoon mix into muffin pan.
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes.

    You can add whatever fruit, spices or flavourings you like to this basic recipe.

    Hope you like it!
