Step-by-Step Guide to Crafting the Best Yorkshire Pudding
Preheat Your Oven: Set your oven to 230°C (210°C fan) or Gas Mark 8. Pour a bit of sunflower oil or goose fat into each compartment of your muffin tin, and place in the oven to heat.
Make the Batter: In a bowl, whisk the eggs, then add the milk, flour, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes to ensure the crispiest puddings.
Pour and Bake: Carefully remove the hot tin from the oven and pour the batter into the compartments. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden.
These Yorkshire puddings are perfect for a Sunday roast, especially when paired with a succulent roast beef and a drizzle of rich gravy. They're also an exquisite addition to any food and drink hamper.
