Recipe Story

Sunday roast is something that brings my family together and it’s always been a very important meal for me. Living in the UK, I love the smell of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding filling the house every weekend.

When I started following the keto diet, I thought I had to give up my favorite dish. I was worried that I would miss out on the joy and comfort of Sunday roast.

But then I discovered that I could make keto Yorkshire pudding. I was amazed by how easy and delicious it was. It tasted just like the original but with much less carbs and gluten free.

I decided to share this recipe with you because I want you to experience the same happiness and satisfaction that I feel when I make keto Yorkshire pudding. You can enjoy it with roast beef and gravy, or with any other keto-friendly main course. 

This low carb Yorkshire pudding recipe is so important for me and all my family love it. They can’t even tell the difference between this and the regular one. I hope you will love it too. Trust me, this is the best keto Yorkshire pudding you will ever have.

Ingredients

To make this easy flourless keto Yorkshire pudding, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of arrowroot: This is a gluten-free starch that helps to thicken and bind the batter. You can find it in most health food stores or online. You can also use cornstarch or tapioca starch instead, but they may have more carbs and they are not keto friendly.
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream: This adds richness and moisture to the batter. You can also use half and half or coconut cream instead, but they may have less fat and more carbs.
  • 1 medium egg: This provides structure and leavening to the batter. You can also use two egg whites instead, but they may have less fat and more protein.
  • 1 tablespoon of beef dripping: This is the rendered fat from cooking beef. It adds flavor and crispiness to the Yorkshire pudding. You can find it in most grocery stores or online. You can also use lard, butter, or coconut oil instead, but they may have different flavors and smoke points.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt: This enhances the taste and balances the sweetness of the batter. You can use any kind of salt that you prefer, but Himalayan pink salt has more minerals and less sodium than table salt.

These are the only ingredients that you need to make your keto Yorkshire pudding. You don’t need any flour, milk, or baking powder. This makes this recipe low carb, gluten free, and keto friendly.

Instructions

To make this easy flourless keto Yorkshire pudding, you will need to follow these steps:

  • Preheat your oven to 220°C (425°F) and add a tablespoon of beef dripping to each of the two cups of a muffin tray. Place the muffin tray in the oven to heat up and melt the fat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the arrowroot, heavy cream, egg, and salt until well combined and smooth. You can also use a blender or a food processor to make the batter. Arrowroot is used as a raising agent and a gluten substitute in this recipe. I wouldn’t recommend to skip it. You can find it in most health food stores or online.
  • Cover the bowl with some cling film and leave it to set for about 30 minutes. This will help the batter to thicken and rise better.
  • Carefully remove the muffin tray from the oven. Pour the batter into the muffin cups, filling them about halfway. Do not overfill them, as the batter will rise in the oven. You should see the fat bubbling around the batter, which means it is already cooking it.
  • Bake the Yorkshire pudding for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown and puffy. Do not open the oven door during baking (at least the first 20 minutes), as this will cause them to deflate.
  • Enjoy your keto Yorkshire pudding with roast beef and gravy, or with your favorite keto toppings. They are huge, crispy, and fluffy, just like the original ones.

FAQ

Q: How do I store and reheat keto Yorkshire puddings?

A: You can store leftover keto Yorkshire pudding in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, you can either microwave them for a few seconds, or bake them in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for 10 minutes, or until crisp and warm.

Q: How do I calculate the nutritional information for keto Yorkshire pudding?

A: The nutritional information for keto Yorkshire pudding depends on the ingredients and quantities that you use. You can use a free online calculator, such as MyFitnessPal, to enter your ingredients and servings, and get an estimate of the calories, carbs, fat, protein, and other nutrients per serving. You can find the nutritional information for this recipe (with the ingredients I used) under the recipe card.

Q: Can I use coconut flour or almond flour instead of arrowroot?

A: No, I wouldn’t recommend using coconut flour or almond flour instead of arrowroot, as they have very different properties and effects. Coconut flour is very absorbent and dry, while arrowroot is a starch that helps to thicken and bind the batter. If you use coconut flour, your Yorkshire pudding will be dense, crumbly, and not rise well.

Q: Can I make keto Yorkshire pudding without a muffin tray?

A: Yes, you can make keto Yorkshire pudding without a muffin tray, as long as you have a baking dish or tin that can withstand high temperatures. You can either make one large Yorkshire pudding, or divide the batter into smaller portions using ramekins, silicone molds, or metal rings. Just make sure that the fat is hot enough before you pour the batter in.

Q: Can I add cheese, herbs, or other flavors to keto Yorkshire pudding?

A: Yes, you can add cheese, herbs, or other flavors to keto Yorkshire pudding, if you want to make them more savory and interesting. You can either mix them into the batter or sprinkle them on top before baking. Some good options are cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, rosemary, thyme, garlic, onion, or bacon.

Q: Can I use almond milk instead of heavy cream? 

A: No, I wouldn’t recommend using almond milk instead of heavy cream, as they have very different fat and carb content. Heavy cream has about 36% fat and 3% carbs, while almond milk has about 1% fat and 2% carbs. If you use almond milk, your Yorkshire pudding will be less rich and moist.

Q: What does Yorkshire pudding taste like?

A: Yorkshire pudding is a baked batter that has a crispy and golden crust and a soft and airy center. It has a mild and slightly eggy flavor, with a hint of salt and cream. It can also absorb the flavor of the fat and the gravy that it is cooked with or served with. Yorkshire pudding is not sweet, despite its name, but it can be eaten with sweet toppings, such as jam and cream, for dessert.

Q: Is arrowroot keto friendly?

A: Arrowroot powder is a gluten-free and grain-free starch that can be used to thicken soups, sauces, and baked goods. However, it is also high in carbs and can affect your blood sugar and ketosis if you use too much of it. Therefore, arrowroot powder can be compatible with keto, but only if you use it in small amounts and occasionally.

Q: Can I use olive oil instead of beef dripping? 

A: Yes, you can use olive oil instead of beef dripping, if you prefer a plant-based fat or a milder flavor. Olive oil has a high smoke point and a neutral taste, so it will work well for keto Yorkshire pudding. However, it may not have the same crispiness and savoriness as beef dripping.

Q: Can I use wheat flour instead of arrowroot? 

A: No, I wouldn’t recommend using wheat flour instead of arrowroot, as they have very different carb and gluten content. Wheat flour has about 72% carbs and 10% gluten, while arrowroot has about 28% carbs and 0% gluten. If you use wheat flour, your Yorkshire pudding will be higher in carbs and gluten, and not suitable for keto or gluten-free diets.

Q: Can I eat keto Yorkshire pudding at good restaurants or fast-food joints? 

A: It is unlikely that you will find keto Yorkshire pudding at good restaurants or fast-food joints, as they usually use wheat flour, milk, and baking powder to make their Yorkshire pudding. However, you can always ask the staff if they have any low carb or gluten free options, or bring your own keto Yorkshire pudding with you.

.

Q: Can I make keto Yorkshire pudding ahead of time and reheat it later? 

A: Yes, you can make keto Yorkshire pudding ahead of time and reheat it later, if you want to save some time and hassle. You can store them in the refrigerator or freezer, and reheat them in the microwave or oven. However, they may not be as crispy and fluffy as freshly baked ones, so you may want to make them on the same day as your roast dinner.

Q: How do I make keto Yorkshire pudding rise better? 

A: There are some tips and tricks to make keto Yorkshire pudding rise better, such as:

  • Whisking the batter well to incorporate air and create bubbles
  • Letting the batter rest for 30 minutes to thicken and relax
  • Heating the fat until sizzling hot before adding the batter
  • Filling the muffin cups only halfway to allow room for expansion
  • Baking the Yorkshire pudding at a high temperature for the first 15 minutes, then lowering it for the last 10 minutes
  • Not opening the oven door during baking, as this will cause a sudden drop in temperature and pressure

Q: What is the history and origin of Yorkshire pudding? 

A: Yorkshire pudding is a traditional British dish that dates back to the 18th century. It was originally made with the drippings from cooking meat over an open flame and served as a first course to fill up the stomach and reduce the appetite for the more expensive meat. It was named after the county of Yorkshire, where it was popularized by a cook named Hannah Glasse, who published the first recipe for it in 1747.
