No Sunday roast is ever complete without Yorkshire Puddings. This Gluten free Yorkshire puddings recipe is a perfect no-fail recipe that tastes delicious. They are so easy to make you will want to make them every time you have a Sunday roast.
Everyone in my family loves them, even those who don't require a Gluten-free diet. In my opinion, using cornflour makes the best gluten free Yorkshire puddings. I have yet to find a shop-bought Gluten free Yorkshire Puds recipe that tastes as good.
Why we love this recipe
- Made in 30 minutes
- Gluten free - Uses only gluten-free ingredients.
- Crispy and rise well - Cornflour Yorkshire puddings rise really well and turn our perfectly crispy.
- Only 4 ingredients - Only a few ingredients are required plus oil for the muffin tin.
- Freeze well - They can be made in advance and frozen. They taste just as good reheated straight from the freezer.
- Cornflour - Cornstarch in U.S. see my cornstarch vs cornflour post for more information regarding the difference. Cornstarch in the US is known as cornflour in the UK.
- Milk - I used whole milk but this will also work well with semi-skimmed milk.
- Eggs - Be sure your eggs are at room temperature.
- Salt & Pepper - to add seasoning and flavor to the gluten free yorkies.
- Vegetable oil for Tin - I prefer to use vegetable oil as it cooks at a higher temperature. An oil or fat that cooks at a high temperature like sunflower oil, fat (such as goose fat), and beef drippings.
Step by Step Instructions
Below is a brief step-by-step process with photos of how to make gluten-free Yorkshire puddings. See the recipe card below for more detailed recipe instructions.
Step 1: Preheat Oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas mark 7. Place 1tsp of oil in each muffin hole of your tin and place in the hot oven.
Step 2: Add cornflour and milk together and mix well ensuring there are no lumps.
Step 3: Beat eggs well and add to milk and cornflour mixture then mix until combined. Then add a pinch of salt and pepper if desired.
Step 4: Transfer the mixture into a jug as this makes it easier to pour into muffin tins. When oil is really hot remove the tin carefully from the oven ensuring you close the oven door once the tin is removed.
Step 5: Pour the gluten-free Yorkshire pudding mixture into the muffin tin half filling each hole and then pop it back in the oven. Try and make this step as fast as you can as you don't want the oil to cool too much.
Step 6: Cook in the oven for approximately 25-30 minutes until puddings are beautifully golden brown. Don't open the oven before they are ready as they will sink.
Notes: See my Tips below for the perfect yorkshires that don't sink and are beautifully risen.
Follow my no-fail tips for how to make perfect Yorkshire puddings.
- Firstly always ensure that the oil is really hot before adding the mixture. Preferably I always use Vegetable oil as it cooks at a higher temperature than other oils.
- keep the oven door closed while pouring the Yorkshire pudding mixture into muffin tins as you do not want the oven to drop in temperature.
- Also, It should be noted not to refill or top up after the mixture is poured as the Yorkshire pudding mixture will begin to cook as soon as it is added to the hot oil.
- Finally, ensure the oven door remains closed during the cooking process as this will result in the Yorkies sinking if not. Do not be tempted to open the door before they are ready!
Following the above steps will result in your gluten-free Yorkshire Puddings being beautifully risen and puffy.
Traditionally Yorkshire puds are a perfect side dish known in the UK and very similar to the American Popovers but instead of individual muffin molds use a 12-hole muffin tin.
- Roast Meat - Homemade Yorkshire Puddings are the perfect accompaniment to a traditional Sunday roast dinner. Pair with my gluten free cauliflower cheese for additional side dishes for a roast beef dinner.
- Gluten free Beef stew - Yorkshire puddings taste amazing with lashings of gravy from the beef stew.
- Sausage and mash - A great side dish to pair with sausage and mashed potatoes.
- Stuffed Yorkshire pudding - If you are feeling adventurous why not try stuffing the cooked Yorkshire puddings with various fillings such as scrambled egg and bacon for a tasty breakfast.
They will go perfectly with any traditional roast dinner, Beef stew, really anything that has lashings of gravy. Alternatively, you can fill the pudding holes with some of your favorite foods such as brie and mushroom, or for the sweeter tooth hot apple with a scoop of ice cream.
Be sure to have a hot preheated oven and do not open the oven door during the cooking time as this will result in deflated Yorkshire puddings.
Yes of course. Just half the recipe ingredients but follow the same cooking time. This recipe for 6 Yorkshire puds only requires 2 eggs and less milk and cornflour (Cornstarch in the US).
Yes just switch out the milk for your preferred dairy-free version to make dairy free Yorkshire pudding.
They can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for you to enjoy for up to 5 days. Reheat in the oven at a high temperature for 5 minutes to get them nice and crispy.
Yorkshire puddings freeze really well can be frozen in a freezer safe bag/container for up to 3 months. Always reheat in the oven at a high temperature for 5-10 minutes to get them nice and crispy.
