The Best Yorkshire Pudding

Recipe by -Sylvie-
READY IN: 55mins




  • Mix the flour and salt and sift them into a large mixing bowl.
  • Make a well and add the eggs, 1 1/2tbsp of the beef dripping, half the milk and beat everything until smooth and all the lumps have gone.
  • Whisk in the remaining milk.
  • Set batter aside and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F/230°C/Gas 8.
  • Place a spoonful of dripping in each pudding mold and heat in the oven until piping hot and starting to smoke.
  • Whisk the batter again and very carefully pour into the hot pudding tins, filling each compartment to about 3/4.
  • Bake immediately for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Don't open the oven door apart from when you need to check if they are done for the first time after 10 minutes.
  • If you're making one large pudding, it will take 30-40 minutes.
  • They should be golden brown, risen on the outside with a deep depression in the centre. (sometimes they rise in the middle as well, but that doesn't really matter. ;D).
