    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.

Love this recipe! You just can't go wrong and I get great Yorkshire puds every time. Have passed this on to 3 other friends and they loved it.

This recipe hasn't failed me yet! Makes lovely puffy puddings. Good for making a large batch and keeping some handy in the freezer. They heat up nicely and taste just as good from frozen. Used this batter for toad in the hole last night. Went down well with everyone. :)

This recipe is the best! I have been so set in my yorkshire pudding ways, that until my oven gave up on me last month, I wouldnt entertain someone instructing me how to put together these humble puds! However, the new oven with the same mix just didnt deliver the fluffy large puds I had come to boast about, so thought I had better look for help.... this recipe astounded me no end!! I did not produce fluffy yorkshire puds, I produced elephants feet yorkshire puds and cannot thank this page enough, (however I still like to dress them up with a sprinkle of onion granules for extra ummmf - perfect!) this proves a point, that you can teach an old dog new tricks lol = brilliant thankyou.

Its all true, having given up on making my own, blaming my oven etc etc i looked at the comments on this recipe and thought id try just once more. They were huge and tasty and my son gave them a 9 out of ten and he is highly critical ( being 7 and eating at least 5 shop bought ones at one sitting) Try works !!!!
