Lactofree chocolate cake

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Arla, the company who produce Lactofree dairy products very kindly sent me some vouchers to try their products for free.

If you have digestive discomfort after consuming foods made with cows’ milk, you could be lactose intolerant. But you don’t need to miss out on the foods you love as Lactofree has a range of real dairy products, just without the lactose.

While many people think they’re intolerant to dairy, the uncomfortable symptoms that occur after eating dairy are often caused by lactose, the natural sugar found in milk. Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest lactose, which can begin from birth or develop at any age. Visit the Lactofree website for more information.

I decided to make my chocolate brownie recipe using Lactofree Spreadable instead of butter or margarine. I topped it with chocolate ganache made using equal quantities of Lactofree Cream and dairy free plain chocolate.

The recipes turned out well. They tasted just the same as if I’d used my usual butter and cream.

The cream also whips well and I used it to make sour cream by adding a little lemon juice.

Thanks to Lactofree, people who are lactose intolerant can now enjoy a full range of dairy products again.
