    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.

Really been disappointed with my attempts in the past so started buying you know who's. Tried this recipe to day and BANG, first time. Even my wife was impressed. No more from premade frozen ones in this house. ;)

Hubbie made these yesterday and were superb, even though he forgot to heat the muffin tray first and I mistakeningly opened the oven door once, towards the end of baking!

Tried this recipe with soya milk. The result looked like a proper yorkshire pudding but it wasn't crispy at all. I might reduce the number of eggs for future attempts.

Put 2 tablespoons of water to the batter with the soya milk and you will have lovely crisp Yorkshire pudds don't reduce eggs regards Linda ps I cook with soya all the time need any recipes feel free to ask

I do think using soya milk might have made a difference. Using cow's milk, preferably whole rather than skimmed, gives brilliant results with this recipe every time. I have never been able to make yorkshires before, and I don't really understand why this recipe works over any other, but it does!

Just add 2 tablespoon water you will find them amazing regards Linda

Why would you mark down a recipe when you were the one to change the ingredients?

Being a transplant to the UK, I've always had an excuse for my hit and miss Yorkies. It's been a source of embarrassment though as I love to bake and pride myself on making a great meal. I tried these tonight in my large Yorkshire pudding tins, which is the tin most of my failures happened in, and they were incredible. Huge and soft with the perfect crisp on the outside. I've pinned this one. It's a definite keeper-wish I could post the photo. They were even bigger than the ones in the recipe photo.
