Yorkshire pudding is a typical English side dish consisting of a baked pudding made from a batter made of eggs, flour, and milk or water.
Its’ amazing versatility allows us to serve it in many ways: as the first course with onion gravy; as the main course with beef and gravy and can also be filled with other ingredients, such as bangers and mash to make a meal.
The Yorkshire Pudding is also part of the Traditional Sunday Roast, so much appreciated by the British!
Check below step by step how to make the most delicious Yorkshire Pudding:
- 1 cup eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Preheat the oven to 220º.C
- Mix the eggs and milk in a large bowl and whisk to blend.
- Add a pinch of salt and whisk again. Let the mixture stand for few minutes to let the bubbles subside.
- Sieve roughly 1/3 of the flour into the mixture and whisk thoroughly to incorporate.
- Repeat with another 1/3 of the flour, and then the final 1/3. At this point you should have a thick and creamy, lump-free batter.
- Let the batter rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes;
- Place 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil into your Pudding Tin and put the tin into the oven until the fat is slightly smoking.
- Add 2 tablespoons of cold water to the batter, then whisk again.
- Fill each pudding tin with batter, one-third full, and quickly place in the oven.
- Bake until the puddings are puffed and golden brown, approximately 20 minutes. Repeat with any remaining batter.
