What Can Be Made With Soy Milk?
Soy milk can be used as an alternative for use in baking, although it is not the same as baking with cows’ milk, it can be beneficial for some people who are lactose intolerant or simply want to avoid dairy. Read on to find out.
What to Know About Baking with Soy Milk
Soya milk will not have the same exact sweetness, protein, fiber, and fat as dairy milk. Fortunately, most baked goods use eggs which bring enough of these important factors to the table that not using dairy milk is of no consequence. This means the structure and texture of your baking projects won’t be affected too much by the loss of dairy milk. However, recipes that require eggs would mean that the use of dairy milk substitutes may be a little riskier.
Soy milk will also work well as a substitute for buttermilk. Just add one teaspoon white vinegar to 1/3 cup of almond, soy, oat, or coconut milk, and allow it to curdle at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes Because of the different water content of each of these “milk” you may need to slightly up the vinegar for best results. You can judge this by how curdled your “milk” appears.
The Best Non-Dairy Milk for Baking: Soy Milk
Soy milk with its high protein content causes the baked goods to brown nicely and look like they were baked with cow’s milk. If you’re making an unfrosted dessert, this more appealing appearance is worth keeping in mind.
Of all the non-dairy milk alternatives, soya milk has the most protein of all, so for baking projects that need a lot of structure (cakes and breads), this is the best dairy-free option.
Soya milk’s flavor is mild and is usually hard to detect in bread, muffins, cakes, and other baked goods. Some soya milk may be enhanced with vanilla flavoring, which could be beneficial, depending on what you’re baking.
