We've said it loads of times by now, but following a gluten free diet no longer means missing out on delicious food. Whether it be beer, pasta, or even granola, there are more gluten free options than ever, and we think that's amazing.
Even when it comes to something a bit more specific like Yorkshire puddings, you've got loads of gluten free options. In fact, there are some excellent gluten free Yorkshire puddings and mixes out there currently which will allow people following a gluten free diet to enjoy Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner just like everyone else. We thought we'd round up the best gluten free Yorkshire puddings that we've bought and tried, let's get into it:
The Real Yorkshire Pudding Co
Made in Yorkshire to an authentic recipe, these gluten free Yorkshire Puddings are as "proper" as a Yorkshire pudding can get. Made using a blend of Maize Flour and Tapioca Starch in place of ingredients containing gluten, both the taste and the texture of these Yorkies are perfect as far as we're concerned. We also love to see free range eggs used in the batter. Learn more and buy them here - tesco.com
Aunt Bessie's gluten free Yorkshire Puddings
Aunt Bessie's is the biggest Yorkshire Puddings brand in the UK, so it's great to see that the brand has produced a gluten free version of the popular Yorkies. We actually picked these up at our local Sainsbury's and found them alongside the standard Yorkshire Puddings from Aunt Bessie's. We can't find them anywhere to buy online, but you can pick them up in Sainsbury's.
Isabel's gluten free Yorkshire pudding mix
We haven't actually included the Isabel's brand too many times in previous guides, but many of the gluten free products that this brand makes are excellent, including this Yorkshire pudding mix. Made using a blend of cassava, potato, and maize flour, we found that the mix was easy to use and the Yorkshire puddings we made were very tasty and had a texture which was similar to Yorkshire puddings made using normal flour. As well as being gluten free, the mix also dairy and soya free, and contains no added sugars. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk
Free and Easy Outstanding gluten free Yorkshire pudding mix
The Free and Easy brand produces a range of excellent food products which are free from allergens, and we recently included them in our vegan egg alternative guide. We were also delighted to see a gluten free Yorkshire pudding mix from this brand, and we're pleased to say that it's really good. Made using chickpea flour, this mix is not only naturally free from gluten, but it also has the added benefit of being quite high in protein. We'd say that the texture is slightly tougher than the Yorkshire pudding mixes using potato flour, but it's actually quite good to have an option like that, as these Yorkies will hold up well when they're smothered in gravy.

When you think of Yorkshire puddings, chances are that you think of the Aunt Bessie's brand. So it's pretty amazing to see that the Aunt Bessie's brand has produced a gluten free version of their famous Yorkshire Puddings. This mix is made using chickpea flour and maize flour, the texture isn't quite the same as the standard Yorkies from Aunt Bessie's, but still pretty impressive. We think the reviews online for this mix are harsh because reviewers are comparing these Yorkies to the standard Yorkshire puddings from Aunt Bessie's, but we think you should give these a shot. All you need to do is add 2 eggs to the mix and you've got great Yorkshire puddings without any gluten. Learn more and buy the mix here - sainsburys.co.uk
Tesco free from batter mix
We have to admit that we were a little disappointed by the lack of supermarket own-brand gluten free Yorkshire puddings that we could find, despite the UK generally being great for gluten free supermarkets. Having said that, we did find a mix at Tesco, and it was really good. Made using rice and maize flour, this batter mix is ideal for gluten free Yorkshire puddings, but can also be used for things like pancakes. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
