Yorkshire puddings with self raising flour?

24
Posted 2nd May
The only flour I’ve ever used for Yorkshire pudding is plain flour however I can’t get hold of this anywhere!

I have a bag of self-raising. Does anyone use this for Yorkshire puddings?

I’d give it a go but I don’t want to waste my eggs if it won’t work

Not used it personally but can't see any reason why not. Maybe just end up with bigger Yorkshire's which isn't a bad thing
You wouldn't really be wasting the eggs by trying, they'd still be perfectly edible and taste pretty much the same, they just wouldn't look much like yorkshire puddings.
They just won’t rise as much but will be edible
They’ll work fine, have used as a substitute a few times before

Are you sure? I would have thought they would rise more?
We had same issue but they were great!

No tried it before don’t rise as much
You will be 100% fine about rise. Here is one using self-raising flour, it is huge. Use this recipe for self-raising flour

*** If no rise, the temperature is the main issue, so pay attention to 220C/425F or Gas 7

Picture source, from above link. I had eaten such huge ones, they are ridiculous funny on the table.

That’s what I thought
Well I've used strong flour often and that's been fine. Sure I've used self raising at some point too
We’ve used self raising for the last couple of roasts. As has been said taste is pretty much the same but don’t rise as well.

I have just read that mixing it with sparkling water helps that. Apparently
It won't works, it will be like a cupcake then sink.
Try your local co op thats where i managed to get flour from when the big stores have empty shelves

i'm a coeliac but my mate cooked some using cornflour when i popped round unexpected one sunday, they tasted fine to me so think the technique is more important

I always thought the co-op was a bid store, there always seems to be plenty of them in the queue.
You can but you need to use a little less flour and then it shouldn’t affect the rising too much.
When I’ve made them in the past using self raising by mistake they were always flat as a pancake.
