Method

  1. Heat oven to 230C/fan 210C/gas 8. Drizzle a little sunflower oil evenly into 2 x 4-hole Yorkshire pudding tins or a 12-hole non-stick muffin tin and place in the oven to heat through.
  2. To make the batter, tip 140g plain flour into a bowl and beat in four eggs until smooth. Gradually add 200ml milk and carry on beating until the mix is completely lump-free. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the batter into a jug, then remove the hot tins from the oven. Carefully and evenly pour the batter into the holes. Place the tins back in the oven and leave undisturbed for 20-25 mins until the puddings have puffed up and browned. Serve immediately. You can now cool them and freeze for up to 1 month.

I made these last night and they were awesome ! the only thing i changed was to use 3 eggs and 1 egg white. My kids were amazed at how big they were.

Yes, the 1 cup each of flour, egg, milk works really well - and you can vary the quantities just by changing the size of your "cup".
The main thing seems to be to ensure that the oil is *really* hot before pouring in the batter.

I haven't tried the recipe yet but when I do I want to make a big batch and freeze them. Please can someone tell me how to refresh them from frozen?

I have never made yorkshire puddings before and tried this recipe. All I can say is WOW - I can't believe how light they were and how much they rise. I served them with roast garlic chicken, stuffing, bacon rolls, mash and steamed veg and my family were very impressed. Thank you!

for the first time in my life I have managed to find a recipe to get them to rise. Followed the recipe to the letter and used a 12 hole tin but they were ready at 17 mins, any longer they would have been close to burning.

Really good risers !!! Very light too, but too eggy for me. Next time I make them I will only put in 3 eggs MAX ... and even then might drop that to two depending on how that turns out.

Never made yorkshire puddings before so decided to give this recipe a try. It's true... they rise so high I could barely get them out of the oven, might have to lower the shelf next time!! My family loved these and they flew off the table. Will definitely make again.

Try this brilliant method. Use all the above ingredients but beat all together EXCLUDING THE FLOUR. After beating together slowly STIR the flower into the mixture and cook immediately.

I will try this recipe because of the comments, but perhaps change the photo? They aren't actually very good...

i found if you use normal 12 cake tray you get 24 in total so devide the ingredients if you dont have freezing facilitys
