Yorkshire Puddings

Updated 2020 - included Toad in the Hole instructions

**using new fan assisted oven and muffin tins

**Using my old gas oven and 12 hole tins

After trying numerous vegan Yorkshire pudding recipes I finally came across this one which is perfect.
I've no idea where it originally came from as I got it off someone who got it off someone and etc etc.
If someone knows then please tell me so I can credit them for their greatness.
Note* The oil in the pan needs to be incredibly hot so leave the pan in there for 10 minutes. When you're ready to put your batter in, take the tray out as quick as you can and pour the batter in immediately - it should sizzle when the batter hits the pan.

2020 Edit* - this also works for toad in the hole. Cook sausages in a large pyrex or oven dish in 2 tbsp of oil, remove from oven when half way cooked and quickly pour the batter mix around sausages and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes depending on how quick your oven cooks. When I first used this recipe I was on a gas oven, but not I've got an electric fan assisted everything cooks better and quicker, so use your own judgement for when it's cooked.

Makes 12 small, 6 medium, or 2 large


115g plain flour
1 heaped tsp gram flour
Pinch salt
1/2 pint soy or other plant milk
12 tsp worth vegetable oil

You will need a 12 cup baking pan or 6 cup muffin tin
Preheat oven to 240c

Put 1 tsp of oil into each cup of your baking pan and place into hot oven.
Mix together the flours and salt, then gradually add the soy milk, mixing until frothy (I'd recommend using a hand blender or mixer to get it as frothy as possible)
Remove the hot baking pan from the oven and fill each cup almost to the top with the mixture.
Put the pan back in the oven as quickly as you can (but don't burn yourself)
Bake for 20 minutes, take out and press the middle down with a teaspoon, put back in the oven for 5 minutes, 
Remove from oven when golden and crispy on the edges and leave to cool for a few minutes. Place puddings on kitchen towel to drain off excess oil and serve.
