Yorkshire Pudding (United Kingdom)

recipe-image-legacy-id--901451_9Yorkshire pudding is recognized as a traditional British dish, bu its origins are somewhat of a mystery. The first recipe ever recorded was in 1737 and was called a Dripping Pudding. Today, Yorkshire Pudding is as popular as ever, and has even developed a worldwide reputation.

Thank you Barney Desmazery and Good Food for the recipe, which makes 8 large or 24 small puds.

Ingredients

  • 140g plain flour (this is about 200ml/7fl oz)
  • 4 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • sunflower oil, for cooking

Instructions

  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.
  3. Serve immediately. You can now cool them and freeze for up to 1 month.

Recipe Notes

The secret to getting gloriously puffed-up Yorkshires is to have the fat sizzling hot and don’t open the oven door!
