Yorkshire Puddings

January 2022

1 cup plain flour, sifted
2 eggs, lightly whisked
300ml milk
60g lard


For the Yorkshire puddings, add flour to a large bowl, then add the eggs, milk and ½ tsp salt, whisking until smooth and aerated. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. 

Preheat oven to 220°C 

Divide the lard evenly between 6 holes( this what the recipe states but I manage to make 12) of a 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pan. Place the pan in the oven for 5 minutes. 

Carefully remove the pan and evenly divide the batter between each hole (should be about ¾ full). Return to the oven and cook for 20 minutes without opening the oven door. 

Remove puddings from the oven and drain off the fat. Turn them upside down in the tray and return to the oven for a couple of minutes to crisp up the bases.
