Right, Yorkshire Puddings….traditionally made with flour, eggs, milk and seasoning. Cooked in hot oil until they are all crisp and pouffy and delicious.  Trying to get a vegan version to rise beyond over about an inch/inch and a half is proving tricky.  They taste great, just don’t look like they should do.

I’m using

3 oz Self Raising Flour

1 1/2 oz Gram Flour

Salt & Black Pepper

1 cup soya milk with 1-2 tsp Cider Vinegar.

Preheat some sunflower oil (about 2 Tblsp) in a HOT oven. Sieve flours and seasonings together.  Add Cider Vinegar to Soy Milk and leave to ‘curdle’.  Add milk mixture to flours and beat until nice and bubbly. Pour batter into hot oil (oil should be hot enough that it sizzles and the mixture starts bubbling when added). Bake for about 30 mins at Gas mark 7.

This shows how a traditional (read milk and egg based) Yorkshire Pudding should look, so you can quite clearly see there is some MAJOR tinkering to be done to achieve a successful vegan yorkshire pudding (and I really don’t want to have to use egg replacer) OR it is one of those culinary delights that just doesn’t work entirely successfully veganically.
