Baked milk challenge - is butter ok?!

Hi there - we've just been given a date in a couple of weeks for a baked milk challenge, and told to bring some sponge cake.

This is probably a really silly question, but does it matter where the dairy comes from in the cake? ie make it with butter, or use actual milk (eg a muffin type recipe)?

We used actual milk. Simply because we wanted to be sure, if dd didn't react, that it was down to the process of baking the milk and not any other process the milk had been through. Not sure whether this logic holds up but I really wanted to be clear in mind what the result was.

Good luck - a whole new world opens up with baked milk!

Thanks - that's kind of what I was thinking, but wasn't sure if it was silly or not! Will use actual milk then.

Fingers crossed... passed baked egg in November, so if this goes well she might actually be able to eat other kids' birthday cakes (without icing etc, but still..)!

Good luck! Really hope it goes well (from a selfish point of view it will give me hope for DS's future too!)

Definitely use actual milk. Butter in theory is just the fat with no protein. As it is the protein that is allergenic you will want to use milk so you know there is a significant amount of protein in it.

Good luck - my DD passed baked milk in May and it has really widened her options of what to eat!
