Best Yorkshire pudding recipe – being from Yorkshire myself, I love Yorkshire puddings with my Sunday dinner! We have Yorkshire puddings with every roast, it does not have to be just roast beef. My Grandma made the very best Yorkshire puddings and here is her simple Yorkshire pudding recipe that I will pass down to my children. I have tried many a recipe for Yorkshire puddings, but none of the others come close!
Yorkshire Pudding Recipe
An easy Yorkshire Pudding recipe handed down from my Grandma (a proper Yorkshire lass!)
- 200g/1 Cup/7oz Plain Flour (In the US this is All-Purpose Flour)
- 3 Eggs
- 300ml Milk (just less than one cup)
- 4 Tbsp of beef dripping, lard or vegetable oil
- Step 1 Prepare your batter ahead of time. Place your flour in a large bowl and then whisk all three eggs into the mixture until it resembles the thickness of double cream. Leave this in the fridge for at least half an hour, but ideally more.
- Step 2 Make sure your oven is as hot as it can be. (220C/180C fan/gas 7 – hotter if you can). Add your beef dripping or oil to your Yorkshire Pudding tins and heat for at least 10 minutes before adding in your Yorkshire Pudding batter.
- Step 3 Spoon the mix into the tin as fast (and carefully!) as you can. This recipe will make up to 12 small Yorkshires, or 6 bigger ones (it might be trial and error for your tins). Bake for 30 minutes, and try to resist checking whether they are cooked or not, halfway!
If you are looking for a giant Yorkshire pudding recipe, the mix is still the same, just use a giant Yorkshire Pudding tin. Just make sure the tin is really hot first.
