Hello and welcome to The Old Summers Home. Today I’m sharing my amazing Yorkshire Pudding recipe with you. This is the recipe I get asked for the most!

  • 3/4 tsp salt

How to make the most amazing Yorkshire Pudding!

Preheat oven to 400°F

Starting the Yorkshire pudding

This recipe is easy to incorporate into the steps of other larger meals as it does not require constant attention.

Mix flour and salt together.

Scoop 1 cup of flour into a medium-sized bowl and add 3/4 tsp of salt. I use a fork to mix the salt in and leave it to sit for a few minutes.

Prep the Oil

This is the perfect time to pour your oil into your muffin tins while you let your flour/salt mixture stand for a few.

Please note this recipe makes 12 Yorkshire puddings, therefore, you need either a muffin tin for a dozen or 2 six-packs. They should be baked at the same time.

Pour a small amount of oil into the bottom of each muffin tin. Just enough to cover the bottom of each one. Approx. 1-2 tsp.

Mix the Batter

Once my roast beef is down to its last 10-15 minutes cooking time I then whip up my batter.

Add eggs and 1/2 cup of milk to flour and salt.

Take your bowl of flour and salt and make a hole in the middle. Add eggs and 1/2 cup of milk. Use your whisk to mix together.

Add remainder of milk to batter and mix out any remaining lumps.

Add the remaining half cup of milk and ensure all lumps are dissolved. Move to the side to sit for at least 5-10 minutes.

You can mix your batter ahead of time and leave it to sit for a longer period of time, just give it a quick whip before using. This will help them to rise better.

Heat the oil

Once the Yorkshire pudding has been sitting for a minimum of 5 minutes (remember longer it sits the better they rise while baking) its time to heat the oil.

Heat oil in muffin tin until sizzling

Place the muffin tin into the oven until the oil is sizzling hot. Usually about 3-5 minutes. Very carefully remove from oven and place on stovetop.

Add the Yorkshire Pudding Batter

Fill muffin tin 1/2 - 3/4 full with Yorkshire pudding batter

Using a ladle fill each muffin tin to approx 1/2- 3/4 full. Make sure to do this while the oil is still hot. Try to keep them as even as possible but its not the end of the world if they are not.

Bake the Yorkshire Pudding

Right now my roast is usually ready to come out of the oven so I remove it and put the Yorkshire Pudding in. However, sometimes my timing is not perfect and that roast goes back in. If you need to open your oven door do it quickly and for a short amount of time. so that you don’t cool it off too much and cause them to fall.

Bake for 20 minutes at 400°.

Bake the Yorkshire pudding at 400°F for 20-30 minutes until Golden brown.

Some ovens may vary and take up to 30 minutes.

How to tell if Yorkshire Pudding is done

It will be golden all the way around and have risen quite nicely. There will be an open pocket hole in the middle of each meaning it is finished baking. This pocket is perfect for gravy by the way! The center may still be light in colour and have some oil in it, as long as it is not doughy it is perfectly ok.

Serve Yorkshire Pudding with gravy alongside Roast beef for the perfect meal combination!

Don’t forget to serve with gravy and enjoy!

Our Yorkshire Pudding is a Hit!

In all honesty, I think within the next year I might need to start doubling this batch, our family absolutely loves them so much.

I love to make our Roast Beef Perfection and Yorkshire Pudding meal when we have guests over. It is definitely a meal that leaves a long-lasting impression and everyone wants the recipe when they are done. This is by far my favourite meal to cook and although I’m writing this post at 6 am I am now craving our roast beef dinner hahaha.

We are usually quite full after this meal so we finish it off with a light dessert like Jenn’s Apple Critters or a small portion of our Ice Cream Cake. By ‘we’ I mean the rest of them because I ‘m way too full after this amazing meal to fit one more morsel of food hahaha. This is the perfect time for the chef to take a nap while everyone else cleans up. A girl can dream, right?

    I’ve only tried this once and I think I could make it. Looks fairly simple. It was delicious. We tried it at a delicious pub in London. Brings back memories.

    I’ve never heard of Yorkshire pudding, but I love all other types of pudding I’ve encountered, so I’m sure this will be no different. Do you think this would be a good addition to a Thanksgiving spread?
