The secret to getting gloriously puffed-up Yorkshires is to have the fat sizzling hot and don't open the oven door!

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…


  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.

although they didn't rise to hit the top of the oven they rose sufficiently and were delicious. Yorkshire pudding has from today at least one new fan in Brazil. Many thanks

I don't know why this recipe works better than others, but it does! I gave up on making Yorkshires for years, used the frozen '4 minute' ones. But for yesterday's roast had forgotten to buy them, so Googled 'yorkshire pudds' and this one came up. Decided to give it a go, and OMG, fantastic! Like some others have said, don't put them too close to the top of the oven, because they rise like mad! It took moments to make the batter, and they looked and tasted perfect. I will never buy the frozen ones again. Amazing!

I just made these and halved the recipe as only 2 of us for dinner, they were massive and touched top of oven which caused a bit of smoke so even after rescuing them they didn't flop! Winner 10/10
