How To Be Vegan And Keep Your Friends

The traditional Yorkshire pudding, a British classic. (You can definitely find a vegan Yorkshire pudding in Britain’s finest vegan pub!)

Ordinarily, a Yorkshire pudding recipe is very similar to a pancake recipe. It’s mostly made up of flour, eggs and milk! The main difference is how they are cooked. 

A pancake is fried, whereas a Yorkshire pudding is shallowed fried in a muffin pan, giving it that crispy, puffy texture.

Luckily, if you’re vegan, you don’t need to forgo the excellent Yorkshire pudding!

Here is a fabulous vegan Yorkshire pudding recipe that you can use for your next vegan roast dinner. 

Let’s dive in.

Vegan Yorkshire Puddings Ingredients:

  • 225g Self-Raising Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 300ml Unsweetened Soya Milk (or another milk alternative)
  • 100ml Warm Water
  • 8 tsp Vegetable Oil
  • Pinch Of Salt

Top Tip! If you want to make gluten-free Yorkshire puddings, just swap out the self-raising flour for gluten-free self raising flour!

Vegan Yorkshire Puddings Method:

  1. Add all of your ingredients, EXCEPT the vegetable oil, self-raising to a food processor and blitz until you’ve got a smooth batter. If you don’t have a food processor, just pour the batter into a large bowl and use a balloon whisk to whisk until smooth!
  2. Pour your mixture into a jug, cover with cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for one hour.
  3. In the meantime, heat the oven to 200 degrees fan and use a teaspoon to add one teaspoon of vegetable oil to each muffin pan hole. (It seems like a lot of oil, but trust me, this step is crucial!)
  4. Once the oven has heated, place the oiled tray into the oven for five minutes until the oil is hot and shimmering. 
  5. Being really careful not to spill or burn yourself, remove the tray from the oven, set it on the side and pour equal amounts of your batter into each muffin pan hole.
  6. Return the muffin pan to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Voila!

What Do Vegan Yorkshire Puddings Go With?

We all know that a Yorkshire pudding is a must-have item when it comes to the classic Sunday roast dinner, but we at Plant Sumo like to get a little inventive with our food!

When you break a Yorkshire pudding down to the basic elements, it’s basically a pancake that you make in the oven instead of in a pan. It’s not sweet or salty, so it can really go with anything!

So why limit yourself to eating a Yorkshire pudding with a roast dinner? 

Here are some great ways to reinvent the Yorkshire pudding!

Vegan Yorkshire Pudding Roast Dinner Sandwich

I know I don’t need to tell you that vegan Yorkshire puddings go well with a Sunday roast dinner – but what do you do with your roast dinner leftovers?

Do you just heat them up?

I’ve got a way that you can LEVEL UP your roast dinner leftovers into the ULTIMATE vegan Yorkshire pudding roast dinner sandwich. You heard right!

All it takes is using two Yorkshire puddings as your ‘bread.’ 

Place your leftovers like your roast potatoes, veggies and plant-based meat into your Yorkshire pudding “bread”!

If you have a toastie machine – stuff your roast dinner sandwich in there and smoosh the whole thing until it becomes a beautiful roast dinner sandwich. (Some great extra toppings include vegan cheese or onion chutney!)

If you don’t have a toasty machine, don’t worry! A frying pan, a spatula, and some will power will see you through (just fry it on both sides while pressing down with the spatula to replicate the toastie machine pressing down on the sandwich).

Sweet Vegan Yorkshire Puddings

There are a few infamous British debates. Is it scone or scone (I know you read those differently, lol), and are jaffa cakes a cake or a biscuit?

Whether or not Yorkshire puddings should be enjoyed savoury AND sweet is another great British debate.

If you like your Yorkshire pudding sweet there are a couple of ways your can spice up (or sweeten up) your Yorkshire puddings. Why not add some ice cream and strawberries or chocolate sauce and nuts?

The only limit is your imagination!
