So, my birthday is coming up, and I'm hoping to bring some dessert to SCA fighter practice with me. The thing is that there are a lot of allergies in our group, including milk and gluten intolerance.

Usually, baking is my thing, but I really can't think of anything off of the top of my head that fits those two criterion. Right now, it seems like my only option might be a fruit bouquet.

Any other ideas?

Fruit sorbet, pears poached in red wine, jelly?
I know dairy free chocolate is available so you could go for that, or use it as an ingredient.
Meringues make an alternative base to wheaty biscuits or cake.
Is the allergy to milk or cows milk, because creamy sheeps milk greek yogurt might be an option if it's cows milk that is the problem?

How about some "fried" ice cream balls? You can use coconut milk ice cream or rice dream or whatever, scoop them into balls and coat with G/F corn flakes crumbs and drizzled with agave nectar or honey mixed with cinnamon and melted dairy-free chocolate.

There are lots of dairy/G/F cake mixes out there, I think even Betty Crocker or somebody has one now. You can make cake pops and coat with melted dairy-free chocolate and sprinkles or sugar, cupcakes of any flavor, a poke cake with soy pudding filling, rum cake, a layered trifle with "ice cream" or "pudding" and fresh berries...so many things to make with delicious G/F cake!

I a have a friend who is allergic to gluten and another who is allergic to milk, so I made a g/f, d/f cake a couple years back! It was delicious!!! I was based with ground hazelnuts and had some cocoa. I'm off to go and try and find the recipe for you, hopefully I'll have kept it, because it was worth remaking.

So I didn't find the hazelnut cake recipe, but I did find another one that I gave a gold star to... although this one asks for condensed milk, I invented a milk-free substitute for that, so I included the recipe as well. Hope this helps!

GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CAKE

  • 125g soy flour
  • 110g corn starch
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 275g sugar
  • 150g margarine, melted
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 250ml condensed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 2 tbsp raspberry jam

1) Preheat oven to 350F. Grease two round cake pans.
2) Sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda, cocoa, and sugar.
3) Add condensed milk and beat with an electric mixer (low speed) for 1 minute.
4) Add the eggs, the banana, and the jam; beat for another 2 minutes, gradually increasing speed.
5) Pour into the cake pans; bake for 30 minutes.
6) Cool 5 minutes before unmoulding on a wire rack.


LACTOSE-FREE CONDENSED MILK SUBSTITUTE

  • 1 cup powdered soymilk
  • 1 1/3 cups boiling water
  • 4 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar (or less, to taste)

1) Combine everything in blender; process until smooth and creamy.
2) Let stand at room temperature until cooled.
3) Store in an airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.
