Yorkshire Puddings – Gluten and Dairy Free

Gluten free yorkshires

I love Yorkshire puddings but haven’t been able to successfully make Wheat and Dairy free ones before. I don’t need to have ‘Free from’ foods but feel guilty if I’ve got lovely fluffy Yorkshires and other members of the family have some resembling small pancakes. So I was really pleased when I managed to  perfect them.

To get super Gluten and Dairy free Yorkshire puddings you need the flour to be light and airy. I’ve found the best flour for this is Glebe Gluten free self raising flour. Available on Amazon if none of your local shops sell it.

If you use something like Dove’s gluten free flour it will be too heavy and you’ll end up with thick stodgy pancakes.

The mixture is just enough to share out in a 12 hole muffin tin. You need about 20mls oil in the bottom of each hole and it must be smoking hot when you add the batter, so it sizzles as you pour it in.

I like to use Glebe SR flour as it's so light but you could try using another gluten free flour and add 2 teaspoons of gluten free baking powder to the mix. Not sure how well this would rise as it's heavier.
Potato flour and Tapioca flour are the lightest but need to be mixed with a bit of rice flour and xanthan gum.
