    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.

Great recipe that has worked every time for me. It would have been nice to have the advice for defrosting/ re-heating though.

You can cook them from frozen, as you would a shop bought frozen variety. Gas mark 6 for 3 minutes

It has never been a strong point, making yourkshire puddings, in fact I normally cheat and by ready made frozen ones! Not any more! the easiest recipe out! they taste fantastic, and all because I was trying to use up excess eggs from my hens and had done enough fancy bakes! Freezer they go and away to make another batch.

Wow thank you so much. I decided that I would try to master one basic at a time. Can't stop watching my yorkshires rise. The toad in the hole on the top shelf has had a sausage that has left the dish and ended up with the plain yorkshire below. Can't believe how easy it is

How do you prepare them from frozen - presumably just heat them up, but anyone have a temp and time? tia
