Dessert Idea Needed

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a huge sweet tooth. I however can't have dairy or soy and the mixes like Betty Crocker and stuff all need butter. I am also allergic to nuts so Pamelas baking mix etc. is out. What are some desserts that I can make other than just plain fruit which is good but I want something else too.

Thanks - i'm craving my old homemade cookies and muffins - this is sooooo hard for me and I am really getting depressed over it all. This time of year, I use to bake muffins and cookies and apple crisps and pies. I'm getting anxious about a Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie and a Christmas without cookies. :(

Also check out www.spunkycoconut.com. I made banana bread for my 3 1/2 year old last week and I liked it better than the gluten version, and my son asked for it for 3 days straight after it was gone. Also love the vanilla bean cake recipe with the chocolate frosting.

Most mixes can be substituted with oil (instead of butter), and water instead of milk.

You may want to try King Arthur gluten-free flour mix since it is free from soy, milk. Their recipes give hints on substitutions.

As for nuts, are you coconut-allergic too? Frozen whipped coconut milk is great, particularly flavored with cocoa.

How about flavored merangues? Egg whites, sugar, and a dash of cream of tartar for stabilization (or vinegar or nothing.) Then, add a dash of whatever you like: pumpkin pie spice, lemon, peppermint, or other flavor.

Pumpkin pie can totally be made without a crust. It is more like a custard. Ohhhh, but I really am not sure how to do this with no dairy.

Honestly, my sweet tooth lately is satisfied (sorta, I'm trying to convince myself) by Good Earth Original tea. LOVE IT!!! Add a splash of (insert choice milk here) and you have a creamy drink that takes time to consume (if you make it hot enough.)

Oh, final idea: freeze peeled bananas and dip them in some chocolate sauce. Delish!

I suggest the Allergen-Free Baker's handbook, How to Bake Without Gluten, Wheat, DAiry, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree nuts, and sesame by Cybele Pascal.

We love apple/fruit crisp here at our house! I just use my old topping recipe that calls for some oats and flour. I use a combo of Earthbalance and Spectrum shortening for texture and flavor, instead of the butter or marg. For the flour, I use a sorghum blend, no gum. That's it! Easy peasy.

I made and liked this pumpkin cake last year http://themommybowl.com/2011/03/14/pumpkin-bundt-cake/

There are dairy-free pumpkin custard recipes out there.

Betty Crocker has dairy free recipes for all their gluten free mixes online. Google it...it uses veggie shortening instead.

I use the Betty Crocker gluten free mixes and use the Smart Balance Heart Right Light margarine that is dairy free. Make sure there is a U symbol with "Parve" under it on the right side of the name. That means it is absolutely, 100% dairy free. It works great in these mixes. I also add 1/4 cup of the So Delicious coconut dairy free Parve plain or vanilla yogurt. The yogurt just makes the mixes a little more moist. I make the recipe that uses the brownie mix and the chocolate chip cookie mix together in a large glass 9 X 13 glass pan. When it is cool, cut it up into squares, wrap each one individually and free them. Takes about 20 seconds in the microwave to warm up with a little extra margarine. Mmmmm.

actually, the "U" symbol on food products means that it is certified Kosher

In interpreting ancient dietary laws and adapting them to modern technology, different rabbis have different views about what exactly passes as kosher. The OU symbol, belonging to the Orthodox Union, is one of the strictest kosher standards on the market today.

The OU has been certifying kosher products for over 80 years. Their first kosher certification went to Heinz. In 1923 Heinz Vegetarian Beans became the first American product to display the OU kosher symbol.

In addition, the OU is the world's largest kosher certifying agency. Some of the famous companies that carry the OU symbol include Coca-Cola, General Mills, Heinz, Kraft Foods, Nabisco Biscuit Co., Pillsbury, Procter & Gamble, and Veryfine Products. The OU certifies over 2300 companies with 4500 plants in 70 countries with a total of over 300,000 labels.

Macaroons! They're just egg white and sugar and nuts or coconut. Best part - you can easily buy them pre-made.

I use Earth Balance soy,dairy free butter substitute in the red and yellow container for all my baking....especially good when used with Betty Crocker and King Arthur mixes...has never failed me. I also use Spectrum dairy,soy free shortening for baking. Spectrum now has a butter flavor shortening, I have purchased it but have not used it yet.I use So Delicious Coconut milk as a milk substitute, and also use Vance's Dari Free. I don't care for rice milk....it is too watery. I'm lactose intolerant and also allergic to milk, so Lactaid milk is out for me also. I made King Arthur blueberry muffins using coconut milk and Earth Balance and they were superb....gluten eating hubby and gluten eating neighbors requested more,more,more.
