Can I just substitute baking block for butter in my Apple Crumble recipe to make it lactose free? Or is it more complicated than that?

Thanks very much!

I'm not sure what baking block is.

I use a recipe for 'oil based short crust pastry' and make crumble with that
(Google will give many versions).

Any vegetable or olive oil works

Or you could use the 'Pure' brand of spreads.

I'm not sure either! I think it's just margarine.

I will have a look at oil based short crust pastry, thanks

When I was dairy free (breastfeeding a dairy intollerant baby) I used vitalite as butter substitute. Just read labels carefully to check they are lactose free.

Yes it works with baking block! (I do mine with half flour and half oats and it's gorgeous!)

Isn't baking block stork margarine in a block?

I would assume that baking block is Trex, solid vegetable fat for cooking.
