Place the flour in a bowl and stir in the eggs, followed by the milk. Swap your wooden spoon for a wire whisk and beat until smooth. Cover and chill for 10 mins or until ready to cook.
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Divide the oil between a 6-hole large muffin tin and heat in the oven for 5 mins. Tip the batter into a jug, then quickly pour into the heated tin. Bake for 25-30 mins until well risen and browned – make sure the puds are cooked all the way through.
Add a kick
Give your Yorkshires a kick by adding some freshly grated horseradish to the batter. You can make the batter a few hours ahead and keep it at room temperature.
