Using soy milk in baking

sarahb5, Mar 5, 4:25am
I got given a free sample 1 litre of Vitasoy which no-one here will actually drink (although I might use it in a smoothie) so was just wondering if I can use it in my baking instead without it affecting the flavour?

it will change the flavour, but not too dramatically depending on the flavour of the cake

Just wondering if I can get away with hiding it in chocolate cake or banana-chocolate ...

One of them is brown - I think it is the organic one - it will take some hiding!I use Soy Milk in porridge and bought the organic and my porridge went brown - tasted okay but did not look pretty!

I always use soy milk in baking - no difference in taste at all.

Well I've used it in my chocolate cake - it is definitely a creamy/beige rather than white but there was no-one here to see what went into it so hopefully they won't notice!Seemed a pity to waste it and I can't have too much soy because of thyroid issues so better to give it to the kids/hubby, and if I put plenty of icing on the cake they'll probably never know ...
