    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 has to be my all time favourite recipe for Yorkshires. It's never let me down and my fussy 4 year old adores it. A firm family favourite!

It was so easy (my first time making them) and came out perfectly! I substituted milk with coconut milk and it is just as yummy! :))

The first time I've ever made Yorkshire puddings (I'm a 40 year old Yorkshire girl. Shameful, I know) and these were perfect. So chuffed I
sent my mum a photo!!

I thought this was a brilliant recipe- I added a tbsp of thyme and stirred in for added flavour- and this was yummy!

amazing... i put whatever hardy herbs in the oil before batter to add a lovely aroma to them but perfect anyway

Best ever yorkies, they hit the roof of the oven, every time.

First time I've ever made these & what a rouring success :-)
I used Gluten free flour too, halved the ingredients, cooked in one medium sized tin for two of us & still the best I have ever tasted, my Fiance also agrees.
Many thanks :-)

Great recipe, they were huge though, I tried not to put much oil in but must have overdone it still

These are amazing, thanks very much Barney! They are definitely the best Yorkshire puddings I've ever made - I got really excited watching them rise in the oven so such heady heights. You can see the evidence here: I used half the quantity, let the batter rest in the fridge for an hour beforehand and got six, good sized puddings out of it.

Such a great recipe, pop them in the oven and watch them grow, and the kids love them too....
