No-Milk Slices

No-Milk Slices are a vegan and healthier alternative to traditional german Milk Slices (Milchschnitten).

No-Milk Slices
These No-Milk Slices are a vegan and healthier alternative to Milk Slices (Milchschnitten), which are a popular food item (mainly) for kids in Germany and Austria. These homemade No-Milk Slices are not too sweet, but rather chocolate-y, you can add more sugar if you want. I’ve used dextrose for the sugar, but you can sub it easily with whatever sweetener you prefer. For the filling I used some Whip Cream, here you can use any whip cream that’s available to you or sub it with some Coconut Whip Cream.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dextrose*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup soyatoo soy whip or use whipped coconut cream

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the filling by mixing the soy whip until firm. Keep it in the fridge for the time being.
  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F/180°C.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder and cocoa. Add in the oil and water and mix with a handmixer until there aren't any lumps in the batter anymore.
  • Place a baking sheet on a baking tray and pour the mixture onto the paper.
  • Spread the batter over the whole baking sheet and flatten the batter with a spatula. The batter should be as even as possible.
  • Bake it for about 8-10 minutes in the oven.
  • Let it cool off completely before cutting the edges away and cut the thin cake in half.
  • Carefully remove the baking paper.
  • Turn one half of the cocoa cake upside down.
  • Pour the filling on the cake with the not so pretty side and top it with the other half of the cake.
  • Cut the slices with a sharp knife and remove excess filling on the borders.
  • Keep them in the fridge when you're not serving them immediately!

Notes

*I've used dextrose in this recipe which is a fructose-free sugar, but you can sub it with your favorite granulated sweetener.

i was wondering if you could use a coconut cream whipped up instead of the soyatoo??

I haven't tried it with coconut whip cream yet. It could be that is doesn't get stiff enough but I'll try it next time! I'd love to hear if it works if you try it before me :)

Never had a milk slice (probably not surprisingly, given that I've not grown up in or even been to Germany/Austria:P) but these look rather yummy!

Thank you so much! The "real ones" are loaded with sugar and sold as "healthy for kids". Ugh. So making your own is definitely the way to go.
