What is the trick to Yorkshire pudding?
There are three tricks to achieving the perfect gluten-free Yorkshire pudding.
Let the batter rest
By leaving your batter to rest for an hour, what happens is that the starch molecules start to swell, the gluten relaxes, and you’ll have a thicker consistency.
Don’t rest your Yorkshire pudding batter in the fridge, leave it at room temperature.
Make sure the pan and oil are piping hot
Place your oiled muffin tray in the very hot oven for 15 minutes, it needs to be REALLY hot.
Then when you pour your batter into the muffin tray, you’ll be able to hear the sizzling immediately as the gluten-free Yorkshire puddings start to cook straight away.
Hold your nerve
Whatever you do, don’t open the oven door to check on your Yorkshire puddings as they will deflate if not cooked properly.
When you look through your door, they may seem to look quite brown but if the timer hasn’t gone off, then don’t open the door.
Always eat Yorkshire puddings immediately!
Top tips for making gluten-free Yorkshire puddings
Make them dairy-free
Switch the milk to plant-based milk and leave out the eggs for a dairy-free version.
What do I serve them with?
Usually, you’ll eat Yorkshire puddings with a Sunday dinner.
Are Yorkshire puddings gluten-free?
A traditional Yorkshire pudding recipe will usually contain plain flour which is not naturally gluten-free, our recipe uses gluten-free flour, so you can eat with confidence, with all the flavor and none of the risk.
We’re working hard on creating more gluten-free recipes!
Can I use self-raising flour instead of plain for Yorkshire puddings?
No, you can’t.
Even gluten-free self-raising flour won’t work, and you won’t get the iconic fluffy rise for your puddings.
Does olive oil work for Yorkshire puddings?
Traditionally Yorkshire puddings are cooked with beef dripping, but as this is a vegetarian website we don’t use this.
Olive oil works perfectly with gluten-free Yorkshire puddings.
How do you store leftovers?
Cut yourself some slack and make your gluten-free Yorkshire puddings in advance.
