Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkshire puddings are a classic British dish, often served as part of a traditional Sunday roast dinner. They are made from a simple batter and are typically baked in the oven. Here’s a basic recipe for Yorkshire puddings:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Vegetable oil or beef drippings (for greasing the pan)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Place a Yorkshire pudding tin or a muffin tin in the oven to heat up.
  2. Make the Batter:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, and salt until you have a smooth batter. Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes. This allows the flour to absorb the liquid, resulting in a better texture.
  3. Prepare the Pan:
    • Once the oven and the tin are hot, add a small amount of vegetable oil or beef drippings to each section of the tin. Place the tin back in the oven for a few minutes until the oil is smoking hot.
  4. Pour Batter:
    • Carefully remove the hot tin from the oven and quickly pour the batter into each section, filling them about halfway.
  5. Bake:
    • Place the tin back in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the puddings have risen and are golden brown.
  6. Serve Immediately:
    • Yorkshire puddings are best served immediately while they are still puffed up and crispy. They are often served as a side dish with roast beef and gravy.


  • Make sure the batter is at room temperature before using it.
  • The key to achieving a good rise is having hot oil in the tin and a hot oven.
  • You can use beef drippings for a traditional flavor, but vegetable oil works well too.
  • Resist the temptation to open the oven door while the Yorkshire puddings are baking to prevent them from collapsing.
