Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

After years of flat Yorkshire puddings, finally the golden globe of a risen dome!

Great Yorkshire pudding recipe and I've tried a few! I make them with skimmed milk so they have a few less calories. They rise every time, all I add for extra flavour is a pinch of salt. They taste a little bland without it.

I've always been rubbish at Yorkshires before but this recipe changed all that! One tweak - used little dots of lard rather than olive oil in the muffin tin. Although rather naughty I think the flavour is so much better. My Nanna always made her Yorkshires with lard and I was glad I followed her lead because they were crispy and delicious.

these yorkies rose lovely, but I found them a bit stodgy so need to do some tweaking.

Yorkshires rose well but I found the mixture to be a bit too eggy- would try again using 3 eggs next time. Used semi skimmed milk too, which worked well.

If you have children add a teaspoon of tomato ketchup to the batter mix it sweetens it and gives it a deeper colour . My girls unusually munch their way through 4 each and look for more.

Handy tip is to do the same with fish batter.

Love this recipe - first time I made it the pudding rose so high it touched the top of the oven! I always used to make flat Yorkshires but this recipe has sorted that problem.

I've been making 'Yorkshires' for over 50 years and my children loved the small ones filled with minced, spiced chicken or beef and vegetables. They can also be used as proper puddings with apricots (or indeed any fruits) and custard as a filing; the list is really endless. Also try adding some finely chopped, fried onions to the batter before popping them in the hot oven.

I love these, soo simple, makes 24 in cake tins that I keep especially for yorkie puds, eat a few rest in freezer, excellent. I tend to get a packet of mix but this is just as easy and tastes way way better, everyone loves them even my picky 12 year old :)

Foolproof and delicious, even my Yorkshire Mother-in-law loved them and she knows her Yorkshires!

First time I cooked Yorkshires! This recipe was easy peasy!

I made 2/3 of the recipe (ie, 140g flour, 2 eggs and 200ml milk) and used a 12-hole cake tray. I also used semi-skimmed milk as that was all I had. They rose beautifully! I normally cheat and use Aunt Bessie's but these were quick, easy and delicious.
Will definitely be making again.
