However, while I have eaten my fair share and probably other peoples fair share as well I have never made them. Not sure why, probably thought they were too much of an hassle or too difficult to get decent results.
Well no more!
Having a dull moment on Sunday I was tweeted by the ever delightful @feastandglory to go and make some Yorkshire puddings, so I got out my trusty cookbooks to find a recipe.
The recipe is fairly standard in most books but I did pick up an interesting tip in the Milestone cookbook which suggested pouring the batter over ice for an instant chill, instead of sticking the batter in the fridge for an hour.
100g plain flour
pinch of salt
oil or lard
Preheat the oven to 200C (fan) and fill 6 muffin tin holes with about 5mm of oil or drop in a little chunk of lard.
Place in the oven until the oil is sizzling hot.
Whisk all the ingredients together until a smooth batter is formed.
Place a sieve with about 6 ice cubes in it over a jug. slowly pour the batter over the ice through the sieve.
Once the oil is sizzling hot, pour the batter into each hole until just below the rim.
Place into the oven for 25- 30 minutes.
this cake and some natural yoghurt a tasty pud was born.
Here's to the Yorkshire Pudding, long may it reign over Sunday dinner. Cheers
