Vegan MoFo 2018 – Day 23

Sunday Lunch

So I intended to do much more for this post today but a number of factors means it isn’t quite as good I wanted. When I planned this post, I forgot my other half would be away and then yesterday I came down with a cold. This meant that I couldn’t really spend the time in the kitchen I would have liked. However, I was determined to do at least one of the elements I had planned. The most important one was the yorkshire puddings. I have never made a vegan yorkshire pudding. Heck, I never made them before I went vegan, I always bought the frozen ones as the fear of flat, soggy yorkshires was too great. But today, despite the cold I went for it. The result wasn’t bad.

Due to the constraints I was under, I had to find a recipe that had as few ingredients as possible and was straightforward. The one I went for was on the website of the supermarket Tesco oddly enough.  The recipe went as follows:

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 7/220C/425F. Put 225g self raising flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, pinch salt in a bowl and then whisk in 300ml unsweetened soya milk, 100ml warm water. Whisk until very smooth with no lumps. Leave to rest at room temperature for 10mins. I didn’t have quite enough self raising flour so had to add a bit of plain and this might account for why some of the puddings didn’t rise as well.

In a 12 hole muffin tray, put 1 teaspoon oil in each hole and heat oven for 5mins. Pour batter evenly into each hole and return to oven for 25-30mins til risen and golden brown.

They weren’t too bad. A little on the stodgy rather than the fluffy side but a decent attempt nevertheless. I would definitely try to make them again and would be tempted to try a different recipe. I have frozen the leftovers so it will be interesting to see if they reheat well.

  1. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well! I’m not that familiar with Yorkshire puddings (despite having spent some lovely times in Yorkshire), but yours look like something I would try happily. What I know of them suggests you’d be within your rights to cover them in gravy, and gravy covers a multitude of sins (or stodge, perhaps).

    1. Thank you! Apologies for not replying sooner but it has been a tricky week. I will definitely try to make them again and there are quite a few different recipes out there to experiment with xxxx
