Yorkshire Pudding Recipes

When I was wondering what recipe(s) to share this week, I suddenly realised that I had never shared the go to, all year round, awesome recipe that is my hubby’s Yorkshire Pudding Recipe.  I can’t believe I’ve never shared before!

Back in the early ‘noughties’ when I met my OH, I have to hold my hands up and admit that

1. I never really had Yorkshire Puddings with my Sunday dinner per say.

and

2. Apart from those giant ones at the pub occasionally, I’d only ever had Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Puddings (other branded versions available… I think).

Home-made Yorkshire’s were a revelation to me, especially when I saw how easy they were to make.  The OH even perfected a Gluten Free version for me now I’m gluten intolerant (thank you to my friend Vikki for the original recipe).

So here are both, they really are the BEST Yorkshire Pudding Recipes out there!

Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Most recipes call for half the amount of eggs to the flour, but the secret is to always add that extra egg!  Depending on the size of the eggs, maybe even add two.

Ingredients

  • 8oz Flour
  • 5 Eggs
  • Milk (to mix – approx. 1 pint)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Dripping, Goose Fat or Sunflower Oil (if preferred)

Method

Add flour, salt and eggs to your bowl and mix well with whisk till a thick paste.  Gradually add milk whisking briskly to eliminate any lumps (although lumps are not a big deal, so please don’t panic!).  You should end up with a light batter, with lots of air bubbles.  This needs to then sit for AT LEAST 30 mins (can be left overnight in the fridge).  Meanwhile pre-heat oven to 220c.  Add dripping/oil to pudding tray and put in oven to heat.  Add mixture almost to the top of each mould whilst dripping still hot and put straight back into oven and cook for 30 mins.  Leave in oven, do not be tempted to open the door, otherwise they will drop.  After 30 mins, quickly open door to allow steam to clear, turn temp down to 200c and cook for further 5-10 mins depending on colour.  Enjoy!

Gluten Free Yorkshires

We initially tried to make with Gluten Free Flour, but they just didn’t quite cut it, so this recipe made using Corn flour has been a real revelation.  You really can’t tell the difference…

Ingredients

  • 500g Corn flour
  • 5 Eggs
  • Milk (to mix – approx. 1 pint)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Dripping, Goose Fat or Sunflower Oil (if preferred)

Method

As per original method above.

Facts about Yorkshire Puddings _ Yorkshire Pudding Recipe _ Family Friendly Recipes

Fillings

  • Gravy – Now in Yorkshire it is traditional to have the puddings as a starter with gravy, and who am I to complain.  It does mean you have to make double the amount I find, as of course you may want another one with your main course…
  • Roast Beef/Chicken/Lamb
  • Roast Veggies
  • Toad in the Hole – Sausages
  • Golden Syrup – another reason why you always have to make extra.  These beauties are amazing with golden syrup poured over for a desert!

You just have to google ‘Fillings for Yorkshire Puddings’ to find some amazing and some very weird ideas to fill them with!

The great thing about these Yorkshire Pudding Recipes are they are perfect for getting the kids into cooking.  A really simple ingredient list and quick ‘make’, then such a dramatic result when they are brought out of the oven.  Our kids love!
