• How to make Yorkshire Puds rise?

    Hello!

    I recently got some vegan Yorkshire Pudding mix to try out, you just add non-dairy milk and egg replacer to it. However I did this and they just didn’t rise. Has anyone got any suggestions of what would be best to use to make them rise? Maybe instead of the egg replacer?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I guess it depends on what you’re using for egg replacer. Awhile back I was looking for vegan popover recipes…kinda close to Yorkshire puddings. Most people say their vegan popovers don’t quite come close to eggy popovers because it’s hard to get the airy poofiness without the eggs. Recipes using Ener-G seem to come out the best, making sure you use exactly the right ratio of powder to water. You might need to experiment with oven temps, make sure pans are well greased, try adding/increasing baking powder, etc.

    I found these Yorkshire Puddings by Deb at Maple Spice…she uses her own blend. You might email her and ask for her advice.

      I used Orgran Egg Replacer which I think is basically the UK version of Ener-G. I followed the instructions on both packets (egg replacer and pudding mix) exactly but I guess I could try adding some baking powder.

      I’ve made successful toad-in-the-hole before (without using the yorkshire pudding mix stuff) so maybe I just need to go back to that recipe instead – I was just trying to cheat a bit by using a packet mix!

      I’ve got some Vegg in the cupboard so I’ll have a look a that recipe, thanks.

      And thank you for all the tips!

        I tried adding some baking powder, and making smaller puds but they still ended up like biscuits!

        I think I’m going to give up on this mix and just use my old recipe.

          Yay for you for trying! Like my dad used to say about cooking, the more you burn the more you learn. 😉

            I’ll have to keep experimenting with this mix because I can’t just throw it away (there’s quite a lot in the packet!). And if they just keep ending up like biscuits then it doesn’t matter, they taste sort-of ok when soaked in gravy!
