Golden and Fluffy Yorkshire Pudding

A Classic British Delight
pinit

Yorkshire pudding is a quintessential British dish, revered for its simplicity and heavenly taste. This golden marvel is a staple at Sunday roasts, but its delectable appeal transcends any occasion. Crafted from a basic batter of flour, eggs, and milk, Yorkshire pudding undergoes a culinary alchemy in the oven. As it bakes, the batter puffs up, creating a crispy, golden crust that encases a tender, almost custard-like center.

The magic lies in achieving the perfect balance of heat and patience. A well-preheated oven and sizzling-hot oil are the secret weapons, coaxing the batter to rise to lofty heights. The result is a harmonious symphony of textures: a delicate crunch giving way to a pillowy, melt-in-the-mouth interior. The taste is pure, comforting indulgence, complementing roasts, gravies, and all manner of accompaniments.

Whether served as a side or the star of the show, Yorkshire pudding embodies the heart-warming essence of British cuisine. Its rustic elegance and rich history make it a beloved classic, a dish to be cherished and passed down through generations.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C (428 °F) .

  2. Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add the eggs and a little of the milk. Whisk until smooth, then gradually add the remaining milk. This can be done with a wooden spoon, but is easier with an electric hand-held whisk. Pour the mixture into a jug.

  3. Measure a teaspoon of oil into each hole of a 12-bun tray. Transfer to the oven for 5 minutes, or until the oil is piping hot.

  4. Carefully remove from the oven and pour the batter equally between the holes or the tin. Return the batter quickly to the oven and cook for 20–25 minutes, or until golden-brown and well-risen. Serve immediately.
