Vegan ladyfingers, the recipe

THEsavoiardi biscuitsthey are biscuits that are prepared with flour, starch and eggs. THEladyfingers without eggsthey are more difficult to obtain but the effort will pay off. Here are the doses for 20 ladyfingers.

  • 160 g of flour 0
  • 50 g of potato starch
  • 50 g of corn starch
  • 20 g of chickpea flour (to replace eggs)
  • 120 g of sugar
  • 100 g of rice milk (or soy milk)
  • 60 g canola oil (sunflower oil is fine if you can't find it)
  • 2 vanilla pods
  • 1 level teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt

In a bowl, dip the vanilla pods into the milk. It is also possible to use a vanilla extract but the pods flavor in a more natural way. Crush the pods to speed up the process.Still, there is vanilla rice milk on the market, to further speed up you can use a milk already flavored.

Here's how to proceed to make ladyfingers without eggs:

  • In a container, combine all the dry ingredients. Make a central hole. Gradually add all the liquid ingredients.
  • Mix until you get a homogeneous and fluid mixture.
  • Transfer the cream to a pastry bag without a spout.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • With the dough, roll out the prepared dough so as to form cylinders about 7-8 cm long.
  • Space each cylinder apart because the cream of tartar and baking soda will cause them to increase in volume.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

Cream of tartar, where to buy it

Cream of tartar, unlike the classic brewer's yeast or chemical yeast for desserts, is more difficult to find on the market… difficult, but not impossible! Among the various products on the market, we point out the one proposed by the company Barra.

On Amazon, a pack of 4 sachets of cream of tartar is offered at a price of 1.68 euros.
