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 halved the recipe quantities as didn't need 24 Yorkshires! Used 70g flour, 2 eggs and 100ml milk.

Absolutely perfect. (if I do say so myself!) :)

Best recipe I've come across so far.

Wonderful recipe - I've been making yorkshire puds for years and this is the first time I would ever class them as successful !!!

Made yorkshire puddings for the first time using this recipe.
After seeing many disasters in the past, and knowing how many people now buy the pre-cooked puddings I wasn't holding out much hope.
I halved the recipe as I didn't want so many and they came out perfectly!!
I understand the heating of the oil in the tray is important so I made sure to do that- and now I have no idea why people buy them pre-made! :-/
Will definitely use this recipe again! Thank you!

By far, the best recipe for Yorkshire puddings ! I also chilled the batter for a few hours and it made all the difference :)

Fabulous!! Always dreaded trying to make Yorkshire puds, as I failed dismally every time. Googled and this was the first recipe I came to - brilliant success for Xmas lunch. So much so, that now my usual frozen ones just aren't good enough for my kids. Thank you, Barney.

Used the recipe exactly as is. First time I've every had yorkshires rise and not be a ball of air or flat as biscuits. Used twice for both Xmas meals I made.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will never use shop bought ones again. So very very easy an foolproof.

Wow. These yorkshires rise!!!

Can't believe how good these came out. They took over the oven.

Make sure you only add a little batter to each.

Made these today for our roast and they turned out perfect! Used an electric whisk and left the batter to rest for 30 minutes before adding to the hot goose fat. Recommend this recipe

Definitely a keeper!
