Perfect Yorkshire puds – hopefully! #GBBOBloggers2016

Ant uses a recipe from The Complete Farmhouse Kitchen Cookbook to make our perfect Yorkshire puds! He swears by this recipe book and has used it for years. However, yesterday and today, he’s not had the same success that he usually does.

Perfect Yorkshire Puds

I had a small taste of the first batch (I hadn’t counted having Yorkshires in my Slimming World syns so I didn’t have a full one) and I have to say, they were delicious. The girls loved them. Ella’s portion was a bit too big for her though and she ended up leaving some!

He tried again today, twice. He’s still not happy with them so he’s now said the kids will be eating Yorkshire puddings for the next two weeks while he perfects them!

To make 12 small puddings, you will need:

125g strong plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
300ml skimmed milk (we used semi skimmed because that’s what we had!)


  1. Beat all ingredients together until bubbles form. Leave the batter to stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat a little dripping in 12 deep patty tins then half fill with batter. Cook near the top of a hot oven 220°C/Gas 7, for about 30 minutes until puddings are golden and fluffy.


Thanks to Tesco for supplying the ingredients for our Yorkshire puddings 🙂

    oh no its always the same, when you feature a recipe you have used time and time again, it does not go to plan! Very frustrating. I think your hubby, now a Star Baker , is feeling the pressure lol after his bread making last week! They look lovely to me
    thank you for joining in x

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
