Someone special’s favorite cake is the strawberry charlotte cake but since that person can’t have any dairy products, I had to substitute the dairy product ingredients with non-dairy options.
I used this recipe for reference and substituted the milk with rice milk and the whipping cream with a vegan whipping cream, both found in Sultan Center and selective Co-Ops. The sponge cake turned out light and airy. The whipping cream does taste a little different from regular dairy whipping cream but it whipped beautifully.
Oh and I didn’t really make a make charlotte cake because I almost never eat the ladyfingers. I opted for a strawberry mousse cake instead, which is exactly the same as the charlotte cake but without the soaked ladyfingers.
I think I want to experiment with other dairy-free cakes so stay tuned!
