Preparation time

5 minutes

Cooking time

20 minutes




  • 260g (2 generous cups) self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 480ml (2 cups) soy milk, or vegan milk of your choice
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing


This was a hard recipe for me to crack, but after several attempts I managed to veganise Yorkshire puddings! Make sure you get your baking tin very hot for this!

Preheat the oven to 210°C (420°F). Pour about 2 teaspoons of oil into each hole in a 12-hole Yorkshire-pudding baking tin.

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together well in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk to the bowl, whisk together until smooth, then pour the batter into a jug.

Now it’s time to get the baking tray hot – place it into the oven for 4 minutes, then remove the tray and quickly fill each hole with batter.

Carefully put the tray back into the oven for 16 minutes, or until the puddings are golden brown and nicely risen.

Serve straight away.
