Hey all,

Just wondered whether anyone could confirm that the Aunt Bessie dumplings (frozen) are vegan? They state 'Suitable for Vegetarians', and don't declare egg or milk as allergens, so as far as I can tell they are, but would just like a sanity check from anyone on here who might know.

Oh, definitely. They are only a very occasional item here, but have them as a back up for when I'm really busy.


Thanks for the replies.

Same here! I loved their veggie toad-in-the-hole too.

My dad tried to make yorkshire pudding vegan once but it failed quite badly! Maybe egg replacer would work? I've never used it, but since it's meant to act like egg, it could do the trick. Actually you've inspired me... I might try this next week!

Oh my I'm not sure I want to try now....! That is fustrating
I never actually liked them as a kid but I think I would now, if vegan ones existed!

It's rare to find something really difficult to veganise, but rubbish when you do!

I made an awesome vegan toad in the hole yeaaaars ago. I wasn't paying any attention to what I put in - but there wouldn't have been any special ingredients, I was at my Gran's house -but it turned out really well. The only thing I could think of when I couldn't recreate the yorkshire pudding was that my Gran had an electric oven (I've always had gas).

Most pointless story ever?

I was using electric.

Need to keep trying, though.

^ That's what my dad tried when it went horribly wrong, although he tried just gram flour + liquid (which is our standard first call for egg replacing!), so it might work with some other things too.

Might as well post it, eh? We could conduct a study across the thread to see if it's down to the individual or the recipe that leads to FAIL ;-)
