Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes (gluten and dairy free!) by claremanson Lemon Drizzle Cupcakes (gluten and dairy free!) by claremanson
Today i was very excited to be baking as it was my first time making dairy free cakes, I already bake gluten free but last week decided to try out a dairy free diet too. To be honest I was not sure what to expect but in the end they just tasted pretty much like regular cupcakes which is great and to those unaware of what they are made of would unlikely taste the difference.

I used my basic cake recipe [link] but used ASDA gluten free flour and Pure which is a sunflower based dairy free butter/spread. As a topping I heated up some lemon juice with sugar then poured on the cupcakes while still warm.

That's it, that's all my Christmas practice baking done, no more photos until after Christmas. Sorry for the rush job on this photo, I haven't got the time at the moment to be taking lots of pictures.

Glad to hear your 'experiments' are working out :) It must be so tough to fit things around intolerances and allergies. There's a bakery near where I work which does GORGEOUS gluten free brownies (brownies are my fave), but I've had gluten free brownie elsewhere and it wasn't very nice at all :(

It was very tough to figure out gluten free baking when I first started as it is right now with dairy free as I can't really use the most common alternative of soy but never mind this is a start.
Oh wow how nice to have a bakery that does gluten free! Can;t really get much around here other than bits and pieces in the supermarkets and they are always hit and miss, so far all the cakes have just tasted of sugar and not very soft and a lot of the biscuits are bad too, only found a couple that actually taste like biscuits! I won;t even touch the bread, can;t stand any of them so i have savoury rice cakes instead.

thank you :) I think it will take a while for me to find some suitable toppings but as for the sponge it worked really well, i am told though never use sweetened soya in baking it it supposed to taste horrible.

Being lactose-intolerant this is definitely a recipe to bookmark. :)

I find dairy free baking quite the challenge for certain things. Some things you just can't substitute soymilk for (custards and creams for example. They won't set up right). :/

I can't wait to try this out this weekend. Thanks for the great recipe. :)

I have been searching for dairy free products for a week or so now, the butter is the only thing i have found that i fully like so far, i am finding it very hard because i can't really have too much soy.

I see a lot of dairy free cooking also done with almond milk if you can have that. If not coconut milk is also a delicious substitution. :)
