The Yorkshire pudding, a firm favourite for most Sunday lunch tables. Sure you can pick up a bag of frozen ones from the shop but why would you? It’s so satisfying and inexpensive to make them at home not! A good Yorkshire pudding should be crispy on the outside with a brown top and a lovely soft bottom. Personally, I can’t get enough of them and for many people, they are an integral part of a roast dinner.

The ingredients are simple flour, eggs, milk and salt. In our easy recipe, we will show you how to make perfect Yorkshire puddings. Once you mix the batter you need to make sure your pan is very hot this will help the mixture to rise and cook evenly.

Cooking tips

  • To test that the mixture is the correct consistency dip a spoon in and out of the bowl. If the mixture coats the back of the spoon it is ready!
  • A good tip while pouring your mixture into the tray is to use a spoon to catch the batter while moving onto the next hole. This keeps your tray clean and ensures that you aren’t wasting any mixture.
  • It is important that you don’t open the oven until they are ready, this is to make sure they rise properly!
