Author’s Note: This recipe is from my upcoming kitchen companion/cookbook for lactose-intolerant people, due to be released by St. Johann Press in early 2020. And, for those of you wondering why it contains the dairy product dry-powder buttermilk, it’s because the vast majority of lactose-intolerant people can digest fermented dairy products with no digestive discomfort whatsoever. In fact, every recipe in the book is high in calcium content.
