Eva’s Yorkshire Puddings 

Yorkshire puddings are one of the easiest things to make once you know how. My mum taught me how to make them so I thought it’s about time I show Eva! There is plenty for children to do: weighing/sieving the flour, pouring the milk and, whisking the egg and mixture.

This is the same recipe I use for making pancakes and the batter for toad in the hole.

Makes: 6-8


4oz plain flour, sieved

1 large egg, whisked 

1/2 pint of milk 

Vegetable oil

Pinch of salt (optional) 

  1. Preheat oven to 200c. In your muffin tray, put 2-3 teaspoons of oil in the bottom and put into the oven for 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk all ingredients together until the batter is smooth. Spoon the mixture into the hot muffin tin, careful not to overfill them and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and raised.

Top tip

Don’t be tempted to open the oven door until they have completed their cooking time as they will sink!

I’m preparing my Yorkshire puddings for Christmas Day in advance, freezing them and I will heat them up in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

I have only recently brought a muffin tin so don’t worry if you don’t have one either! Any oven proof dish will do, you can make one big one and cut it up.

  1. These look great – and her proud little smile is the best! 😀 My nan always used to let me make the yorkshire puddings on Sundays and I was always so pleased to have a little job to do. The only problem was that she taught me to make her own version which is more like a heavy cake (on occasions we even had it with jam after dinner!) so now I continue making them like that, much to my OH’s disgust! #picknmix

  2. I have never tried to make my own yorkshires, but think I might give it a try soon with your recipe 🙂 No doubt mine will be a disaster though ha 😉

    Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix lovely, have an amazing Christmas and new year
