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

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 have been using this recipe for a long time now. I cook them in silicone muffin tins, and they turn out absolutely perfect every time, in fact you have to be careful not to put them on the top shelf because they rise so much! I have no idea why the recipe works so well, but follow it to the letter, and you will have the best yorkshires you have ever had.

I am healed! As a Yorkshire lass who has never had any success as a pudding chef, this recipe worked wonders! Thank you!

I have had a 100% susses rate with this recipe. And they taste great. I do add a pinch of salt and black ground pepper. My wife is French and a great chef, but she can't beat me with this recipe. If your looking for a Yorkshire pudding recipe look no further.

hello. must say am a bit lost ? as 1g is the same as 1ml, therefore 140g is very misleading as it must be 200gms ie 200 ml. and not 140 g. please help....

You are comparing measurement for weight with measurement for volume. You have to consider density here: One desilitre or 100ml water weighs around 100 grams since water's density is just barely below one gram per cubic centimetre. Flour is nowhere near as dense, and stuff like humidity affect on it's volume as well. When following a recipe, I would strongly suggest to weigh things like flour and sugar should they be listed by their weight instead of volume, for the sake of consistency.

This is now my go to recipe for Yorkshires after some complete failures

Just a comment: Normal standard now is to calculate 1 dl (100 ml) flour to 60 grams. Another example that measuring by weight is to be preferred to volume measures!

This is a GREAT recipe - followed it exactly and the Yorkshires rose beautifully! I especially like not having to leave the batter in the fridge. Will use again and again.

Thanks for your question. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the frozen Yorkies on a baking sheet and cook for 6-8 mins until golden and hot.

Hello, How much batter do you pour in to the tin and can I use a cupcake tin because I don't have a muffin or yorkshire pudding tin?! Thank you!

Hi there, yes you could use your cupcake tin. Pour the equivalent of a couple of tablespoons into the tin and cook as above.

Can someone please convert these measurements for me. I am from the United States and at the moment, I cannot locate my conversion chart. Also, I have a gas oven and need that temperature converted. Many thanks!!

The oven needs to be preheated to gas 8 and they go in at the top of the oven. Hope that helps.

Made these last week and the best I've made. Just have one question, can they be cooked from frozen or do I need to defrost first?

It's better to use equal quantities of ingredients. What I do (for family of 5/6 2adults rest kids) crack two eggs into a bowl and weigh them. Then I add equal amounts of plain flour (sieved) and milk. A pinch of salt and pepper. Give it a good mix with an electric mixer. Then I sieve the mixture again into another beaker with spout. I then leave in fridge for a couple Of hours to allow it all to combine. Heat over on max with muffin tins and about a tea spoon of oil in each hole. Allow that to get really hot at least 30 mins. Remove mixture from fridge give another quick mix and then pour straight into muffin tin and in to oven. Reduce heat to gas 5 or 6 and leave in there for about 30 mins

Oh, THANK YOU!!! Like eating crunchy air - not too good if you want to prevent yourself from over indulgence though, I ate the lot - thank goodness I only made half a batch. One tip, don't overfill the muffin trays - about 1/2" or 1.5cm is plenty full enough, they will grow and grow in the oven - My nieces love to watch them
