Top Tips for Christmas: How to make perfect Yorkshire Puddings

My kids don’t think a roast dinner is complete unless it is accompanied with a Yorkshire pudding, and if I am completely honest I am also a little disappointed if the ‘Yorkie’ is missing… And what is Christmas dinner but a fancy roast dinner?

So with this in mind, I thought I would brush up on my Yorkshire pudding skills (mine haven’t been rising lately) to make sure that this years Christmas dinner is as successful as possible, and as this is the season of sharing, here is what I have found.

Yorkshire Puddings

  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
  • Skill level: Easy
  • Makes 12 individual puddings


  • 150g plain flour
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten with a dash of milk
  • 200ml  semi-skimmed (2%) milk
  • pinch of salt (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 200ºC
  2. Put a teaspoon of oil into the holes of a 12 hole muffin tin, then heat the oil in the oven until sizzling hot.
  3. Sift the flour from a height (to add air) into a bowl.
  4. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and combine
  5. Slowly add the milk to form a smooth batter, then place the batter into a pouring jug.
  6. Remove the muffin tin with the hot oil from the oven and quickly but carefully add the batter to the holes.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
