Enjoy A British Christmas Favorite When You Make Yorkshire Pudding

Did you know that about Yorkshire pudding? I sure didn’t! I love learning new things about traditional dishes, somehow it makes it much more fun to cook them! This is a lovely treat that I would happily enjoy for lunch, every day of the week! I LOVE to enjoy these little Yorkshire puddings with beef and brown gravy. Oh yum! My husband and kids enjoy eating this meal, too.

Will you be serving Yorkshire pudding for the holidays?



4 eggs

1 cup and 2 Tbsp (200ml) whole milk

1½ cup (200 grams) all-purpose flour, sifted

pinch of salt

vegetable oil with a high smoke point


Preheat oven to 370 degrees.

Pour about ½-inch of vegetable oil into each cup of a muffin tin. Preheat the oiled muffin tin in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add milk and keep whisking to get some air into the mixture. Sift the flour into the mixture and whisk until there are no lumps. Add a pinch of salt and whisk. Pour the batter into a measuring cup, so it’s easier to pour into the muffin.

Take the muffin tin out of the oven and be very careful – the oil is extremely hot! Pour batter into the cups of the muffin tin. Use a spoon to prevent dripping the batter in between the cups – if you have batter in between the cups, it’ll drag the Yorkshire pudding down and stop it from rising.

Put the muffin tin back in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Do not open while baking!

Serve with your favorite fillings!





Quick Tip: This goes great along with a rich gravy.
