Ben’s NoRecipe Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkies were traditionally served as a first course with gravy, to fill the diner with low-cost ingredients.  This would mean that poorer families would make an expensive roast meal stretch further.

My grandparents often talked about having a large Yorkshire pudding to start a traditional Sunday roast.

Nowadays, the yorkie is a staple part of any roast in my house.  My wife has the best recipe, and shares it below.  Sometimes the simplest things are the best 🙂


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Pour 1 tablespoon of oil into six 80ml (1/3 cup) capacity muffin pans. Place in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until oil is hot.
  2. Combine ¾ cup flour, ½ tsp salt into a bowl. Add 2 eggs and whisk until combined. Gradually add 300 mL milk in a thin steady stream and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour batter among the hot muffin pans.
  4. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown
