Yorkshire Pudding Gluten Free

It is a good thing to remind ourselves how the expression of our appreciation toward someone is such an encouraging thing.
You -  our readers -  often make our day with your comments and kind words. Without you our blog would have no purpose!

One of you made my day recently,
June, who has to eat gluten-free, decided to mix up my Julie's Flour Blend and has enjoyed using it.
 She took the time to  send me an e-mail and  shared one of her successes with me. In response to my request, she kindly gave her consent for me to post her recipe and photo for others to enjoy!
So thank you, June for your Yorkshire Puddings recipe and your willingness to share it with us!

Saturday in the kitchen when I was growing up was always with Sunday dinner and company in mind. Someone I was reminiscing with about our childhood Saturdays said how roast beef was always served at her house every Sunday dinner,  and of course Yorkshire Puddings are perfect with roast beef.

Here is June's recipe --  I have tried/tested  it and found it to be five star !

Yorkshire Puddings (gluten-free) 
  • Three large eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup Julie's flour blend (no need to sift)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
  1. Put all these ingredients in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Do not overbeat because they will not rise as high.
  2.  Heavily butter six muffin cups or custard cups and divide batter between them.
  3.  Bake in a 375°F oven for 60 minutes until puffed and very well browned. Don't open the oven to peek!
  4. Spoon on some gravy and enjoy! Mine rose to 4 inches high! 
NOTE - The Yorkshire Pudding may be re-crisped in a 375°F oven for five minutes or a toaster oven for two minutes.


  1. Those truly look delish !!! which you could pass me one --just love yorkshire pudding ---question--wouldn't the roast beef be cold since it takes 1 hr. unless you have a oven warmer-- but it sure looks good,,

    1. Yes.. I agree ... a bit of juggling .... but the roast beef has been made ahead, it could be warmed up to be ready when the yorkshire pudding comes out of the oven !

  2. Could I use regular flour instead of your special blend and would I have to alter any of the other ingrediants for it to come out the same? Thanks!

    1. I think if you do not need to be gluten free, you would be better off to just use a regular recipe that uses wheat flour.

    2. Anonymous, here is a recipe using regular flour. It is almost the same. except for one less egg.

    3. Thank you so very much for your reply and your recipe for regular flour. I am definetly going to use your recipe! I love the way they are so high and crisp, just like the ones my Mom used to make! Sadly mine always go flat and now I have the recipes and techniques to make them just perfect! Thanks again :)

  3. Those yorkshire's look perfect! "Julie's Flour Blend" is getting famous! Good job.

  4. Here is a fabulous recipe for Yourkshire Puddings using regular flour -
