If you’re baking a gluten free dessert and you’re in need of a dairy free substitute for sweetened condensed milk, you’re in luck! This substitute recipe works well in baked bars, cheesecake, fudge, cakes and more, that call for sweetened condensed milk. I converted it to gluten-free with corn-free options from Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute. You should go there and check out all of the positive feedback for the gluten version. I hope this helps many of you gluten-free dairy-free dieters. It is not only a substitute, but healthier for you than some non-organic brands.
Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute (Gluten-Free Corn-Free Dairy-Free)
A dairy-free sweetened condensed milk substitute made from ingredients you may just happen to have on hand.
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoons gluten-free all-purpose flour containing gum
- 1/4 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder (Rumford - or for corn-free, Featherweight)
- 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- With your fingers mix the brown sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt together, breaking up any lumps.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla and add it to the dry mixture. Whisk it until it is thoroughly incorporated.
- Use cup for cup as a substitute for sweetened condensed milk.
For corn-free dieters, use an all-purpose flour that contains guar gum, not xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is derived from corn.
Note: Allergens will vary depending upon the flour you use.
