My husband is going to make me GF clam cakes for my birthday on Sunday and I want my littlest one to be able to have them too.  He can't have dairy, but I'm not sure if it would be a mistake to replace the milk in this recipe with more clam juice:  http://glutenfree-dom.blogspot.com/2010/07/fourth-of-july-and-clam-cakes.html  What do you think?

What do you normally use as a milk sub in your cooking?  I would just use that.  If your goto is rice, maybe start with 3/4 the amount and add for the consistency you need.

I usually use coconut.  I don't think the taste would be right if I used that.

lol  Yeah, I wouldn't think coconut would work :)  I would just get/make some rice milk. You could always try using more juice.  I wonder if that would concentrate the flavor too much though.

I can't get to the recipe through the link, but what about almond milk?  It has a pretty neutral flavor, and the unsweetened stuff is not as sweet as rice milk.

 

Oh, and it's easy to make your own in the blender with raw almonds and water.

We ended up just using clam juice and they came out great.  There was a slight taste difference, but it didn't affect the batter, which is what I was worried about.  :)
