Vegan Yorkshire puddings

“A Sunday dinner staple, and for some a Christmas dinner must!”

I’ve played around with a lot of vegan Yorkshire pudding recipes that I’ve found on the internet and it took much trial and error but the one that won, was the most simple. Some recipes opted to add tumeric to give it colour or to use almond and coconut flour, which really aren’t cupboard staples so I settled on this recipe when I realised it was all really about just ensuring the oven was at the correct temperature and the oil hot!

Yorkies for Christmas or not?

For some it wouldn’t be Christmas without them, for others they have no place on the plate at Christmas.

Either way I like to cater for all at my Christmas dinners so it’s always worth having the option. And I always think if you can pull out a decent vegan Yorkshire pudding in front of your non-vegan guests then they’ll be pretty impressed too.

It’s a very simple batter, which much like traditional recipes must be left to sit for a bit and requires very hot oil.
