Yorkshire Pudding

Yorkshire pudding is a traditional English food, not at all like the American dessert pudding. It is somewhat similar to a biscuit or roll, and is traditionally served with meat and gravy.


  • 125 g or 4 ½ oz all-purpose flour

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 300 ml or 10 fl oz whole milk

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 tbsp goose fat, beef drippings or lard (you can also use refined coconut oil or shortening)

Preparation method

  1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Add the eggs and whisk in. Once incorporated, gradually whisk in the milk a little at a time. Whisk to a smooth batter, then season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Put half a tablespoon of fat or oil into each of eight holes of a deep muffin tin. Leave in the oven for 5-7 minutes to minutes to heat up, or until the fat is smoking hot.
  3. Pour the cool batter into the holes dividing it equally and return to the oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes without opening the door, then check and cook for a further 2-3 minutes if necessary or until golden-brown and risen. Remove and serve immediately.
