Gluten Free Yorkshire Pudding

Sunday Lunch

4.7 stars from 6 ratings of Yorkshire Pudding

Coeliacs can have Yorkshire Pud

These traditional accompaniments to a Sunday Roast are usually made with plain flour. Indeed you can use this recipe supplementing the cornflour with wheat flour for well risen puddings although a recipe would usually call for less eggs.

Cornflour has the added advantage of making a smooth, lump free batter mix and it does not detract from the taste at all.

Roast Beef is the number one choice for an English Sunday Roast and it is unheard of to serve this dish without the accompanying Yorkshire Pudding. It's always overlooked for coeliacs who end up without the local delicacy which is a shame as they are so easy to make.

There is a general rise in the number of people who have food intolerances and are allergic to certain food. In the EU, fourteen food allergens now have to be labelled on food products. Businesses who supply any kind of food, including cafes, restaurants and snack bars, all now have to display information regarding allergens in food. A restaurant must be able to advise a customer, either verbally, or in writing, if a menu item contains an allergen.

Gluten free Yorkshire pudding are suitable for everyone and I think that they are a little bit more crispy and very light. They also rise very well, people won't believe that they are wheat free.

How to cook a joint of beef

When cooking beef, always remember to get the oven searing hot by pre-heating for about fifteen minutes. Roast the beef uncovered at 180 degrees centigrade for about ten to fifteen minutes, depending on the size of the joint. This will seal the outside of the meat so the juices do not run out during the cooking process.

Season meat with salt and pepper. I sometimes use mustard or horseraddish or a dried stock cube rubbed into the flesh. Five spice is very complimentary to beef, especially if you are slow roasting it or cooking in a slow cooker.

A lower temperature of about 130 degrees is then fine for cooking the meat. For beef, it is always nice to have it a little bit pink in the centre. Test the temperature by inserting a skewer into the centre of the meat for about ten seconds. Remove skewer and place to bottom lip. This will give you an idea of how much further cooking the joint requires.

Facts about the Yorkshire Pudding

  • According to the Royal Society of Chemistry, a Yorkshire Pudding is not a Yorkshire Pudding unless 4 inches high
  • The first known published recipe was in 1737 although the "dripping pudding" was a staple of the English diet long before then
  • Traditionally the Yorkshire Pudding was eaten as a first course with gravy and this tradition is still followed in parts of the North of England
  • The meat and vegetables would have been eaten with a white or parsley sauce
  • Eating the Yorkshire as a first course was supposedly to fill you up so as to stretch the meat and vegetables which were more expensive
  • In very poor households, the first course may have been the only course as the dripping and blood provided a high calorie meal using just eggs, flour and milk
  • In days gone by, the pudding would have been a much flatter and less crisp version of the puffed up version of today

Proper Beef Dinner

Roast beef is traditionally served with a rich brown gravy, roasted potatoes, Yorkshire Puddings, horseradish sauce and vegetables, more often than not boiled or steamed carrots. Broccoli also goes well with roast beef as do peas and definitely buttered cabbage.

It's also common for Sunday roasts to now be served with roasted vegetable selection including courgettes, onion, parsnip and sweet potato. A carvery roast is also a popular choice for many people on a Sunday. This is where a selection of roast meats, Beef, Turkey and Gammon being the favourites, are carved by the chef at the carver servers. The best places let you have a slice of all the meats on offer and accompaniements including Yorkshire Puddings and stuffing.
