Ingredients for 8 Yorkshire Puddings
To make 8 Yorkshire Puddings you will require:
- 100g (4oz) plain flour
- a pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- 225ml (8 fl oz) milk
- Olive Oil for greasing the tin

Instructions - how to make your Yorkshire Puddings
- Begin by pre-heating the oven to 2200C, Gas mark 7, or if using a fan oven 2000C.
- Place the flour in a bowl along with a pinch of salt.
- Whisk the eggs lightly in a jug.
- Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the eggs and a little milk.
- Begin lightly whisking the mixture together, slowly incorporating the flour into the eggs whilst adding the remaining milk a little at a time.
- Continue whisking until you have a smooth bubbly batter. Then transfer the batter from the bowl into a jug.
- Lightly grease your Yorkshire Pudding tins with a light brush of olive oil or a little vegetable fat to ensure the puddings do not stick to the tin. Place the tin into the pre-heated oven to warm for 3-4 minutes. Remove the tin carefully from the oven once the oil/vegetable fat is piping hot.
- Pour the batter into the tins ensuring that you share it out evenly.
- Place the Yorkshire Puddings into the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes ensuring that they are well risen and a beautiful golden brown before removing.

Useful tips for making Yorkshire Puddings
- To save time, especially if you are cooking for a special occasion, you can make the Yorkshire Pudding batter the day before and leave to rest in the fridge. Just give it a little whisk again before pouring it into the Yorkshire Pudding tins.
- If you like you can even cook the Yorkshire Puddings the day before you want to serve them. Remove them from the tins and place them in a cool place. You can then re-heat them in a pre-heated oven (2000C, fan oven 1800C, gas mark 6) for 10-15 minutes.
- It is perfectly okay to freeze Yorkshire Puddings. Ensure that you allow them to cool once cooked, place in a freezer bag and they will keep for up to 2 months. You can then cook the Yorkshire Puddings from frozen (2000C, fan oven 1800C, gas mark 6) for approximately 20 minutes.
