Vegan ganache

Is there a vegan ganache recipe which sets hard to cover with fondant. Thank you.


It really helps. Thank you so much.


Hi helenomara

Use a plant based double cream such as Elmlea or another similar brand. Google search ‘vegan double cream’ to view suppliers.

I have used Elmlea as a sub for dairy and it works just as well. You may have to slightly increase chocolate quantity, especially for white ganache. Try a small amount first to get a feel for texture.

Ganache calculator is here:

Hope this helps 🙂
