    How to Make Perfect Yorkshire Puddings

    yorkshire pudding batter in tins

    The secret to making the perfect Yorkshire Puddings is all in the consistency of the batter. Too thick and they will not rise, too thin and they will not rise. So you have to get the ingredients and the consistency of the Yorkshire pudding batter just right.

    Most people think that Yorkshire Puddings are hard to make, but this is not true. Just follow a few simple rules and your Yorkshire Puddings will rise to any occasion.

    In this Yorkshire pudding recipe we follow the rule of 1 egg to 1 ounce of flour, the only other secret is that you should add a splash of Olive oil to the Yorkshire pudding batter

    Despite popular belief you do not need to get your oil as hot as the sun before you tip your mixture in. The oil needs to be just hot enough so that the batter slowly starts to cook as you pour it in.

    The most important thing is that you get a small island of oil in the centre of the mix after you have poured the batter into the tins, this is what will cause the Yorkshire pudding to dip in the middle and rise on the sides.

    To Make 8 Yorkshire Puddings
    2 eggs
    2 Ounces of Plain Flour
    1/4 tsp of Salt
    15 ml of Olive Oil
    60 ml Full Fat Milk

    Cooking Instructions

    1. Beat the eggs in a mixing jug with a fork or a whisk.
    2. Add the flour and mix with a fork to form a thick paste.
    3. Mix in the Olive Oil.
    4. Add the milk and beat vigorously to form bubbles. The more milk you add the lighter the Yorkshire puddings will be, up to 60 ml. If you don't want to use milk you can use Soy Milk if you like.
    5. Let this mixture rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
    6. Using a Yorkshire pudding tin or a muffin tin put 1 teaspoon of olive oil into each pudding mould.
    7. Heat the oil in a preheated oven @ 200 c (fan) for about 5 minutes so that the oil is hot but not smoking.
    8. Remove the oil from the oven and quickly fill each mould with approx. 1 Serving Spoon (60 ml) of Batter Mix.
    9. You want to fill the moulds to just about half and you should have an island of oil floating in the middle of the mix. If there is no oil floating on top then they will probably be misshaped.
    10. Put the tins back in the oven and turn the temperature up to 180 c. (Fan)
    11. Bake for approx. 20 minutes, so that the puddings are well risen and a golden brown colour.
