Ever had these? My mom used to make these often when I was a kid but it was never often enough. If you are unfamiliar, these are a side dish usually served with roast beef and covered in gravy. They are savory not sweet. I remember when I was a teenager that I brought my boyfriend to a family dinner. When he saw the yorkshire pudding he asked for someone to pass the jam. Jam? No, no, no, that’s all wrong. When we first went gluten free 3 years ago there were some things that I assumed we would never have again. I was sure these were one of those things. However, since figuring out my own version of a gf all purpose flour (and everyone has one) things seem so much more optimistic. These were my first try at them and just like when I was a kid a dozen was simply not enough. Hmmmm, I wonder why I am not loosing weight??? These are light and airy and scream to be covered in a rich beef gravy. No, they are not even remotely healthy with all the simple carbs but for as often as I would make a roast beef I will just enjoy them and not think about my waist line or anything else but how perfect they are.
1 cup rice milk – plain unsweetened or water
1 cup all purpose gf flour
1/2 tsp salt
olive oil or beef fat drippings from a roast beef.
Start by adding enough oil to just cover the bottom of 12 muffin tins. Using a brush coat the sides of each tin with the oil. Turn on your oven now to 425 degrees and put the well oiled muffin tin in the heating oven. The muffin tin should be nearly smoking when you add the batter. While the tin and the oven are heating, make your batter. Seriously, how easy is this? Add all ingredients together and whisk until smooth. (I actually used my immersion blender to speed up the process.) Pull the tin out of the oven and quickly pour batter evenly into tins. Return to oven and DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. They will fall. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately. If your yorkshire puddings turn out like “hockey pucks” as my mom used to call them, don’t worry, they still taste incredible.
