Easiest Ever Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Updated on December 7, 2015

This recipe is for tasty no-nonsense Yorkshire Puddings. Its beauty lies in the fact that you don't already have to be cooking a joint of meat to make the Yorkies. You can start from scratch and eat the Yorkies with any main dish you like.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Serves up to 8 people

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

Essential equipment for Yorkshire Puddings

  • 2 four hole Yorkshire Pudding tins
  • Whisk
  • Mixing bowl
  • Jug
  • Weighing scales

Instructions - how to make your Yorkshire Puddings

  1. Begin by pre-heating the oven to 2200C, Gas mark 7, or if using a fan oven 2000C.
  2. Place the flour in a bowl along with a pinch of salt.
  3. Whisk the eggs lightly in a jug.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the eggs and a little milk.
  5. Begin lightly whisking the mixture together, slowly incorporating the flour into the eggs whilst adding the remaining milk a little at a time.
  6. Continue whisking until you have a smooth bubbly batter. Then transfer the batter from the bowl into a jug.
  7. 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.
  8. Pour the batter into the tins ensuring that you share it out evenly.
  9. 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.
