Gluten free, lactose free pudding
Herja · 23/01/2022 09:57
My gluten and lactose free friend is coming for a roast today and I have a need for pudding! Normally, I do some kind of bastadised crumble with coconut cream/custard, or brownies with an allergy friendly recepie. I am really bloody bored of these (and know friend is too!), so need something new.
All the recipies I can find seem to be trying to be 'healthy' - I don't WANT reduced sugar, paleo and a claim you can eat it while sticking to diets! I want it to be sticky and sweet and indulgent. Any ideas?

Pavlova with lactose free cream and fruit?

Delia's apple and almond pudding, although I do it with pears. Bake it for longer than it says, so the top becomes almost caramelised. Serve with vanilla Swedish Glacé ice cream (dairy free).

Alternatively, this is nice… www.onelovelylife.com/flourless-chocolate-cake/

Can she tolerate butter? Lots of people with a lactose intolerance can tolerate cake made with butter and it would open up possibilities.
Or I like a plain chocolate mouse made with just separated eggs and good dark chocolate. 4 eggs, 100g chocolate, melt chocolate, add egg yolks, fold in stiffly whisked egg whites.

Pavlova with lactofree cream is a good suggestion. A fancy jelly? Nice box of dark chocolate (which are very low lactose naturally)
I'm lactose and gluten free and have largely given up on deserts as its so hard. A nice desert wine maybe?

Here's the Delia recipe. Obviously use margarine not butter.

..chocolate mousse, though I'm sure a chocolate mouse would be cute and delicious.

As someone who can't bake..... magnum do vegan versions??

I agree on butter- butter is safe i think for lactose free, (not ok for a milk allergy obv) .
The GF bit is easy with cakes- I make everything GF and just substitute with Dove’s Farm flour. Nicer with butter but you could use margarine. As suggested above you could make a pavlova using soya cream , with cherries or strawberries.
Baked apples stuffed with sultanas and cinnamon are easy and delicious on a cold day, again with Soya cream or dairy free ice cream.

I really like the look of that apple (Would also swap to pear) Delia thing! That looks perfect.
She can definitely tolerate a bit of butter, though I usually use a bit for flavour and then vegan spread for the rest.
Thank you all so much! We're going for a chilly walk first, so a warm pudding is my ideal, but some excelent cold suggestions here too. She's not a great cook/baker, so I like to always provide proper pudding as I know she still misses them! It's something she looks forward to coming here.
Thank you all!

I've made this before and it was delicious

It warms up nicely too for hot chocolate fudge cake and serve with some dairy free icecream.

Salted caramel chocolate pots are delicious, rich, and if you choose the right chocolate they're soy free too.

I second the suggestion by pastabest
Becky Excell - Gluten free cup of tea - does fantastic GF recipies and always details how to adapt her recipie to make it dairy free, vegan etc. She has a website for all her recipes and now has two cook books too.
You could also look up Sarah Howell - The gluten free blogger - who has some nice GF recipies but I'm not sure if they are dairy free.

Your friend has the same dietary restrictions as me. I like to make a gluten free apple cake, make a treacly, winter spiced syrup and drench it and then serve it with custard- I just use lactofree milk or cream to make it. Sometimes pop a splash of whiskey in the custard. Delightful!
We get very tired of crumble and brownies. And fruit salad!

I've made the Delia one, with a sort of sticky toffee sauce and (later)lactose free custard. It looks amazing and smells lovely. Some of these look perfect for next time, thank you all so much!
