Yes my lactose free pound cake is smiling a beautiful strawberry smile!
I found this really good recipe and only had to alter the milk so I could use lactose free milk or soy milk.
The strawberries were placed on the bottom of the loaf tin but made there way up through the cake but I guess this is good too as it added some deliciously sweet strawberry flavour throughout. It worked out really well. Just make sure you don't over beat otherwise it will get a little rubbery!
Don't ask me how I know, I just know hahahaha.
