I love James' recipes but why can't we have imperial measures also, for we "old birds" who are still using old fashioned scales which only measure in lbs and ozs. Having to find an on-line converter every time is a bit of a chore.

These are the worst YPs I've ever had. The batter was as thick as wet concrete and the YPs didn't rise a bit and were a soggy mess in the middle. Its not surprising since James Martin has another recipe on the bbc website with virtually the same amount of flour and 8 eggs instead of this one which has 3! Can't believe the other posters seems to have had success with this!

Doing our best to create a typical British roast in Austria......the yorkshire puddings are fine but not the same as we would manage at home in the UK. Think it's something to do with the flour that we get here. Would be interested if anyone has any tips on the best Austrian equivalent flour!!

I'd lost my way a bit with Yorkshires, but James has restored my confidence. As with previous posts, I found the cooking time too long, so kept a close eye on them. Mine were ready after 20 minutes and they looked wonderful. I also increased the time I heated the oil to 10 minutes - 5 minutes may be fine, but old habits die hard. Due to lack of oven space I have to cook my Yorkshires first and reheat them later (not that I want to), but even that worked out well, they weren't hard and crispy as usually happens. I can't thank you enough James!

Made these tonight. Perfect puffy. And crisp but... 30 mins too much. I set it to 25. And even on 20 they were well done. ;-) 14-16mins. More like it !! Fab

These are delicious! Even though I fiddled with pans, open and closed the oven couple of times, they came out absolutely wonderful..
