Sussex Pudding (A Little Different Than Yorkshire Pudding)

"This is just another version of Yorkshire pudding. It goes well with any meal. Especially with a roast, potatoes, fresh veggies and gravy. When done right they are light and puffy and very GOOD"

Ready In:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package onion soup mix or (1 1/4 ounce) package onion and mushroom soup mix
  • 1 cup milk (at room temperature)
  • 4 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons hot melted margarine or 3 tablespoons hot melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 425°F; rack at mid level.
  • In a bowl whisk flour, soup mix, eggs, milk and margarine.
  • Generously grease 8 large muffin tins and place on a cookie sheet. Pour 1/3 cup of batter in each tin.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until puffy and golden brown.
  • Remove from cups and serve warm.
  • I find that it sometimes helps to make the batter well in advance of cooking and refrigerate it right up until you want to cook them.
  • Have muffin tins hot and then proceed as directed. Either way it works!

  1. Wow Bergy, these are amazing, thank you so much for sharing your recipe with all of us. Different enough from Yorkshire Pudding to count as a new family favourite. Another alternative for roast beef. These are just wonderful, great flavour, they rise really well and absorb the gravey beautifully. I wish I could give you more than 5*'s...they deserve 10*s....Kudos
  2. Bergy, I made this recipe exactly as you wrote it, and the puddings were positively RUDE, the way they rose in the oven!! I happened to have meat with a lot of sauce for dinner, so it worked perfectly, thank you!! I ate 3 of the huge jumbo-muffin-pan puddings ... shame on me. One note to others: do not add salt because the soup packet has enough salt. I used a "Brown Onion Soup" packet -- this being South Africa it might be slightly different in size to the US and Canada. I am not British; have never made Yorkshire puddings, but have a recipe from a famous chef which says "use a cup of everything". Strangely enough my 4 jumbo eggs were exactly 1 cup! I did put about a tablespoon of butter in each giant muffin hole and heated it all up in the very hot oven until I heard the butter sizzle. I whizzed the ingredients with an electric mixer, then poured it into the pans. Great, Bergy!! Easy as well.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
