Vegan Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

In my house we have a roast dinner nearly every Sunday without fail. We don't always have Yorkshire puddings though so I completely forgot about them when I went vegan and it never occurred to me that you must be able to make a vegan version. That was up until a few months ago, when a lovely lady called Heather posted a recipe in a vegan Facebook group. Heather had played around with a non-vegan recipe she had found and discovered that mixing the egg replacer and water in a blender rather than by hand yielded the best results. Intrigued, I decided to give the recipe a go, and upon tasting the golden, crispy puddings I was hooked! My roast dinners just don't feel complete without a couple of these delicious Yorkshires anymore.
 I've had a few requests for the recipe since I posted some pictures in a recent makes and bakes post, so without further ado, here it is. This recipe makes 6 large Yorkshire puddings, but you can halve the quantities to make 4 smaller ones.
100g plain flour
250 ml unsweetened non-dairy milk of your choice
4 tsp egg replacer powder such as Ener-G or Orgran
8 tbsp water

1. Preheat oven to 230°C/gas mark 8.

2. Add a drop of oil to each section of your Yorkshire pudding pan and place in the oven to heat.

3. Whisk together the flour and milk.

4. In a blender/food processor combine the egg replacer and water until very fluffy.

5. Quickly fold the "egg" into the flour mixture.

6. Once the pan is very hot, pour the Yorkshire mixture into the sections and put back into the oven. The oil should sizzle when the batter is added to it.

7. After 15-20 minutes take the pan out of the oven (the tops should be starting to crisp at this point) and "pop" the tops with the back of a spoon to expose the centres. Put the Yorkshires back in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.
The trick to successful Yorkshire puddings is to ensure that both the oven and the oil in the pan are very hot! If you try out this recipe I'd love to hear how your puddings turn out.

  4. Had tried other vegan Yorkshire recipes without much success. I tried this recipe, they were delicious tasted like real yorkie pudding and even better was the fact the recipe was so simple and no long list of ingredients. Only trouble I had was stopping myself from eating the whole lot at one go. Thank you so much for this recipe

  5. I'm so pleased the recipe turned out well for you Liz! They are certainly very moreish aren't they? x

  6. When you say blend the ener g till very fluffy, how fluffy do you mean? So its stiff like if you were making a meringue? Or should it still be fairly liquid? I've tried twice now and they've both been disasters! The mixture just bubbles up and over the edges of the pan.

    1. Fluffy as in a frothy, foamy liquid. It sounds like maybe you are pouring too much mixture into each section of the tin? Make sure your oven and the oil are really hot, and keep trying as they are worth the effort :) let me know if you need any more advice x

  7. Just tried these for the first time & they were delicious - thank you!

  8. You should try out this recipe as well :)
