These dairy-free Yorkshire puddings with oat milk are just as delicious as the best traditional Yorkshire puddings. Golden and crispy with a fluffy inside, they are the perfect accompaniment to your Sunday roast. You'll be a super hero when you produce a tray of these perfectly risen Yorkshire puds!
What you'll love about the recipe
- Easy to make, these dairy-free Yorkshire puddings with oat milk come out perfectly every time. And they are indistinguishable from a conventional Yorkie, so you can serve one recipe to everyone
- Oat milk Yorkshire puddings are perfect for allergy sufferers. If you want to make dairy-free gluten-free Yorkshire puddings, you can use gluten free flour. I prefer to add some cornflour too, so use this gluten free Yorkshire pudding recipe and substitute oat milk in the recipe. You can buy gluten-free oat milk from major supermarkets if needed.
Plain flour. There's no baking powder in the recipe. Yorkshire puddings rise as the egg expands in the heat of the oven, so avoid using self-raising flour.
Oat milk. I haven't tried other types of dairy-free milk. I think they would work, although you might end up with a slightly different flavour. It's really important to use an unsweetened milk!
Egg. This is essential in the recipe, so although these Yorkshire puddings are dairy free, they are not vegan!
Seasoning to taste.
Olive oil, or another healthy oil if you prefer. Traditionally Yorkshire puddings are cooked in beef dripping, and you could use this if you prefer.
How to make dairy-free Yorkshire puddings
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees, 200 fan.
Add the flour to a large bowl and mix in the seasoning. Using a whisk, make a well in the centre, and crack in the egg. Gently mix in some of the flour from around the sides of the bowl.
Add the oat milk to the centre of the bowl, and mix in the remainder of the flour.
Whisk well until the batter is completely smooth.
Transfer the batter to a jug so that you can pour it easily.
Add half a teaspoon of olive oil to each of the holes in the muffin tray. Pop it in the preheated oven for 5 minutes until it is piping hot.
Remove the tray from the oven and quickly pour in the batter. The mixture will sizzle slightly so take care. You might want to wear an apron;)
Return the tray to the hot oven as quickly as possible and cook for 20 minutes. Keep the oven door closed during the cooking time.
The cooked Yorkshire puddings should lift easily from the tray.
- The secret to success for these dairy-free Yorkshire puddings is to make sure that the oven and the oil are properly hot, and to keep the oven door shut. If you are cooking a roast at the same time, take the meat out of the oven to rest whilst the Yorkshires cook.
- Double up the recipe if you want large Yorkshire puddings - the ones I made were the size of a muffin, so if you've got a hungry family you might want to serve 2 each;)
Serving and storage
Like other recipes, dairy free Yorkshire puddings are best served hot directly from the oven. They are traditionally served with roast meat but serve them as you like. They'll certainly go well with sausages or a vegetarian alternative.
If you do have leftover Yorkshires, they can be stored in the fridge for a day or two and reheated in a hot oven for 6-7 minutes.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, if you've got leftover oat milk, pop it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Remember to leave a gap at the top of the sealed storage container as like other liquids, the oat milk will expand as it freezes. It might split as it defrosts but just stir it back together. The frozen oat milk will be perfect for recipes such as dairy free white sauce, oat milk pancakes, dairy free custard and oat milk hot chocolate.
You can buy special trays for Yorkshire puddings which are more shallow than a muffin tin. However, a muffin tin also works - just fill each hole until it is about a third full. I don't find non-stick is necessary, as the cooked puddings come out of the tins very easily.
