Make ‘perfect’ Yorkshire puddings every time with four-ingredient recipe

Gordon Ramsay shares his mum’s recipe for Yorkshire puddings

No Sunday is complete without a fluffy yet crunchy Yorkshire pudding, as it is one of Britain’s favourite side dishes.

This beloved food may seem tricky to make as they have to be crispy on the outside but both soft and chewy on the inside, but they are actually very simple to make in around 30 minutes.

It may seem intimidating to make them from scratch, but it can easily be done and is usually cheaper than buying them from the supermarket, as you only need four ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen cupboards.

Lauren Gourlay is a mum and Glaswegian cook who has explained how to make Yorkshire puddings from scratch.

In a video online, Lauren said: “Make your own Yorkshire puddings at home, trust me you will not regret it.”

To begin, preheat the oven to 200C.

Take your muffin tin and add a little oil to each hole in the muffin tin. Place the tin in the oven to heat up for 15 minutes until the oil is very hot.

While the tin is heating up crack your eggs into a small bowl or jug and then pour in the milk. Season with salt and pepper.

Slowly add in your flour and whisk thoroughly until you have a smooth batter.

Once the muffin pan is hot, add your Yorkshire pudding batter to each hole. Do this at the oven so you are not walking around with hot oil, and be very careful when doing this as oil can spit when it is hot.

Cook the Yorkshire puddings for 25 minutes, but the secret to making the perfect Yorkies is to not open the oven while they are cooking. Opening the oven will cause the mixture to deflate quickly, leaving you with undercooked and soggy Yorkshire puddings.

Once the time is up, take them out of the oven and your delicious golden Yorkshire puddings are ready to serve.

Lauren said: “That’s how you ensure you get these perfect Yorkshire puddings every time.”
