Easy Vegan Yorkshire Puddings (Dairy free, Egg free)
Easy Vegan Yorkshire Puddings, crispy on the outside and beautifully fluffy inside. The perfect accompaniment to a Sunday Lunch, sturdy enough to hold a bucket full of gravy and just as good stuffed with bubble and squeak the day after! Vegan comfort food at its best! Dairy free, Egg free & Soyfree too!
Anyone who is unable to cook with eggs either due to allergies or by choice will tell you that Vegan Yorkshire Puddings are the ultimate in eggfree cooking.
(Well ok some might argue its eggfree meringue or macarons or choux pastry – but in this house its yorkies!)
This recipe has taken some tweaking over the last couple of years, we’ve had batches that were soggy, some that were crispy and some that were just plain puddles of mush.
FINALLY… I came across this recipe on the BBC food website, and with some tinkering to make it safe for me & The Peas I actually managed to make some that were really really good!
The recipe calls for soya milk, to replace the volume of liquid and protein that comes from the eggs. Due to allergies to soya, we can only use coconut milk drink, which has less protein and more water. Using strong bread flour rather than self-raising flour adds more protein to the mix and less of the cake-y texture you get from the baking powder. The added salt helps to strengthen the protein strands in the flour and hold onto more of the bubbles while cooking.
I will add some better pictures at some point – but I need a batch to last long enough to do it!

Easy Vegan Yorkshire Puddings (Dairyfree Eggfree)
- First make the batter so that it can rest in the fridge before cooking. Sift the flour, salt, pepper and baking powder together in a bowl. Using a stick blender or whisk, beat in the water and milk until you get a smooth batter. Pour the batter into a jug and set in the fridge to rest for an hour.
- Next put a little oil in the bottom of each hole of a muffin tin and place in a preheated 200C oven.
- When the oil is hot, divide the batter between the holes in the tin and bake on the middle shelf. Just like normal yorkies, the key is to not open the oven door while they cook. I start off with 35minutes and then take it from there.
