Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons of plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 4 tablespoons each of cold water & cold milk

Method

    1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add in a pinch of salt. Mix 1 beaten egg, 4 tablespoons each of water & milk into a jug, then add to the flour & salt mixing continually, beat well with a 'wooden' spoon until a smooth runny batter, is obtained. This mix is sufficient for 2 people, if more is required simply multiply the mix.
    2. This is the important part, leave the mixture to stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
    3. Heat the oven to 230C and when hot add 1/2tsp of fat to each tin and place the tin into hot oven, when the fat is smoking hot then add your mixture. Tip: Keep fat used from previously cooked pork/beef sausages in your fridge until required, this adds a fantastic flavour.
    4. Cook in the hot oven for approx 15-20 minutes if using small bun tins and 30-35mins if using large tins.
    5. Enjoy!!

I am a retired married man, and my wife is still working, so i enjoy cooking her a meal after work,whenever I made her a roast dinner I always bought frozen Yorkshire Puddings, No more, this recipe is easy, foolproof and the result is delicious.

I made this recipe quantity and it turned out 12 modest (due to tin size) individual puddings. Perfect for 3 of us though I only managed two. 'Remainders' were hoovered up post second helpings of roast! These were not flying away to the roof of the cooker but rose very nicely and tasted delicious. Listen to 'Mam' - these are tasty and good.

I like the idea of 4 of each main ingredient plus egg. Means one can carry the recipe in one's head if needed.

I didn't have sausage fat but I can imagine that they would be truly out-of-this-world with it.
