How To Make Perfect Yorkshire Puddings
This recipe gives you deliciously crisp yet fluffy Yorkshire Puddings, every time. They’re really easy to make, and as an essential part of a roast dinner, are a key recipe to master!
Makes 12 servings.
- 140g plain flour
- 200ml milk
- ¼ tsp salt
- 4 large free-range eggs
- Oil, lard or beef dripping
- Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas 7. Combine the flour and salt into a bowl, then make a well in the centre to pour the eggs and some of the milk into.
- Whisk until the mix is smooth, and gradually add the rest of the milk. Pour everything into a jug.
- Measure a dessert spoonful of oil, lard or drip into each hole of a 12-bun tray. Put the tray in a preheated oven for five minutes (or until the oil is piping hot/smoking).
- Remove from the oven and pour the batter equally into each hole. Pop the tray back in and cook for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the batter mix is golden brown - don’t open the oven door while they’re cooking, because that could make them sink (catastrophe!). Serve immediately.
Top-tip: If you want to try something different, make a larger Yorkshire Pudding in a baking tray, and fill it with the meat and veg from your roast to create your own roast dinner wrap. Serve with fluffy roast potatoes and plenty of gravy for a twist on your classic roast.
