Dairy free dilemma

Hi there,

My grand-daughters are dairy intolerant but one wants the tardis cake for her birthday!!! Has anyone used non dairy chocolate to make ganache? Just wondering how it worked out or if it's even possible.



Hi Ali224

Most supermarkets sell dairy free chocolate in their freefrom range, I know Sainsbury's do have it. Make the ganche up as in the normal way using a dairyfree cream. Dairyfree ganache can also be made with regular dark chocolate with 50-60% cocoa solids, it's also possible to get dairyfree white chocolate. If you google 'dairyfree ganache' you'll see lots of recipes.


Thank you.
