Great Yorkshire Puddings


Yorkshire puddings are easy to make and only need flour, eggs and milk. They go great with roast beef and roast chicken. They can also be a starter with gravy.

This is the recipe I use for making Yorkshire puddings.

What you need:

140 g of ordinary plain flour.
4 large eggs, preferably free range.
250 ml of semi-skimmed milk. 

Non-stick Yorkshire puddding/muffin tray, be careful some non-stick trays loose their non-stick coating. So best have a good one.

Cook for 25 minutes at 200 deg.C



First of all you need the tray to be pre-heated before you put the mixture in, so bring it to temperature, this normally takes around 10 minutes in a fan oven.

Place the flour in a bowl and separately beat up the eggs and add a pinch of sea salt and some ground black pepper. Then add the milk.

Gradually pour and beat with a whisk or fork the egg mixture into the flour. When all the flour is mixed I use an electric stick whisk to make sure the mixture is smooth with all the lumps out. You should have enough mixture to half-fill the typical 12 sections of a baking tray. If by experiment you find the mixture too thick just add a little more milk. If you make Yorkshires often you will know how to vary the seasoning and the milk.

Take the pre-heated tray out of the oven, or slide it out if it is on rails, pour in a small amount of sunflower seed oil and swirl it around to cover the bottom of the pan - do not use too much. 

Then pour in the mixture, just filling each section half full. Return to the oven and cook for around 20 - 25 minutes at 200 deg.C. If you have a glass front to the oven you can keep an eye on the cooking and you can take them out earlier if they have the right degree on colouring. Do not keep opening and closing the oven door! Depending on your oven and experience you may want to vary the temperature a few degrees either side.

The ones I made are very light and not stoggy. Goes well with a nice gravy. You can use them alone but goes well with roast beef or roast chicken. Enjoy :)
