Yorkshire Puddings

If you take nothing else from this website, let these moreish savory parcels be sole my gift to you.

These melt-in-the mouth puffs are a staple of our Sunday Roast Dinner.

Any roast without these Yorkies is seriously lacking.

The recipe easily makes 24, which just about does us lot (a family of 6).

Any extra batter can be used to make additional puddings–if trays and oven space allows. I will often pour any left over batter into a thin cake tin, to make something of a toad in the hole (minus the toad).

Be sure to preheat the oil enough before pouring in the batter, this is key to a crisp pud and decent�rise. And don’t open the oven door until the puds are ready, else they’ll risk deflating.
