Another great recipe, although we can't claim this as our own! We originally followed Jamie Oliver's recipe when it comes to making Yorkshire Puddings, a failsafe recipe for a Flawless Yorkshire pudding. Crispy and golden coloured on the outside and soft and spongy on the inside!
There are a few tips I want to point out though to make sure you get the results you see in the pictures below!
How to make the best Yorkshire Puddings?
We make our Yorkies ahead of anything else! They really need to have an oven dedicated to themself to get the best rise and crispiness needed.
We then pop them back in the oven for a few minutes to reheat them, whilst plating whatever we are serving them up with?
See below our step by step slide show on how to make our Flawless Yorkshire Puddings. All ingredients and cook times are on the recipe card below.
See below for the tools you will need.
What temperature oven for Yorkshire Puddings?
Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425 F it must be very hot. Use 1 teaspoon of Sunflower oil (Vegetable Oil works well too) in each hole of the cupcake/muffin tin/tray. Put into the oven for at least 10 minutes, to get piping hot whilst we prepare the Yorkshire pudding batter.
Simply sieve the flour, add eggs, salt & pepper and milk all in one mixing bowl
Next, use a hand blender to mix all together until smooth. (will only take a couple of minutes)
Once the oil has had 10 minutes remove from the oven and immediately add batter to each cupcake hole. Fill to about ½ full. Don't let the batter drop between each hole as they will end up connecting to each other! We use a spoon to catch any drips preventing this from happening!
Next, place straight back into the oven and watch the magic happen!! They will rise before your eyes! It only takes between 12-15 minutes to get the perfect scrumptious Yorkshire Pudding. Golden and crispy on the outside, yet soft on the inside.
Can I freeze Yorkshires?
Yes, we only use 6 at a time so we often make 12 and freeze the other half until next needed.
Once the Yorkshire Puddings have cooled place in a freezer bag and place in freezer until needed. They will keep for 1 month.
No need to defrost them just put them in the oven at 200 C for 8 minutes to reheat
What to serve Yorkshire Puddings with?
Yorkshire puddings are traditionally served with Roast Beef, however, why limit to just beef?! We love it with all our Roast dinners!
