    Sunflower oil

    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.

This was perfect, I used the mixture and divided it between two sandwich tins which produced two lovley large puddings xxx

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...

Hurrah this one worked for me!!! Have been trying other recipes for months and just getting frisbees every time. This one worked fantastically well. Think my Y. Puds look better than the picture above!!!

I've made these a few times and they always come out great! I love the fact that I don't need to mess about with scales measuring out all the ingredients, I just use a pyrex dish. I only put 3 eggs in mine, but they were quite large and came to 200 mls (same amount of milk and flour). I also added a tsp of mustard powder to the batter.

I like to eat mine with onion gravy, black pepper, mint sauce and a slice of pickled beetroot - sounds weird, but I love it! :-)
