Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.


  • 125g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 275g milk
  • Put all ingredients into Thermomix and mix on Speed 5 for 5 seconds
  • Scrape down if required and mix again
  • Pour into hot muffin tray cups (1/3 full) and put into oven, 200ºC, for about 20 minutes or when they've risen well over the tops of the muffins cups
  • Serve immediately  (So, have everything else ready to go)
Some of the frillypantii are using Pear Ketchup on their roasts,  which is obviously a disgusting idea. Weirdos.  But they also love it on their Yorkshire Pudds.  I feel like I ought to confiscate one pudding from everyone who does that. Sound fair?

None!  This is Yorkshire Pudding!!!!!  You cannot improve upon Yorkshire puddings! 


  1. Usually people put the drippings from the roast in the muffin cups, instead of oil. It adds a lot of flavor!

    1. Thanks Suzanne for your comment. Dripping would be very high in amines and therefore impossible for this recipe page. :( Thanks, frillypants x
