Yorkshire puddings

Light and puffy Yorkshires, just the way your mum used to make them.
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 240ml milk, warmed
  • 30g unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 30g lard or 3tbsp vegetable oil
1) Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas7.

2) In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, butter and eggs. Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in the milk mixture, and whisk to make a smooth batter. Set batter aside for 10 minutes.

3) Meanwhile divide the lard between the cups of a 6-large cup muffin tin. Heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and, using a ladle, divide the batter between the cups. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes, without opening the oven. Lower the heat to 180C/Gas4 and continue to cook the puddings until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

4) Right after removing the puddings from the oven, insert the point of a knife into each one to release the steam. Serve immediately with roast beef.

Cook's Note: This recipe can also be made in a 12-small cup muffin tin. Baking time and temperature will remain the same.

Variation: Puddings can be served with butter and jam, syrup or maple syrup. Copyright 2001 Television Food Network, G.P. All rights reserved
