  • Serves: makes 6-8
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Effort: easy


  • 170 g plain flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 425 ml whole milk
  • large pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp lard


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6.

2. Put the flour, eggs, milk and salt in a liquidizer and blend until smooth. You may need to stop the motor and scrape down the sides in order to incorporate all the flour into the mixture.

3. Spoon the lard into the Yorkshire pudding tray, filling the holes to the top and put into the oven. As the fat begins to smoke, add the batter and return to the oven. Make sure you don't open the door for the next 15 minutes, or the puddings won't rise well.

4. When golden and risen, take out of the oven and turn each pudding upside down before returning to the oven for another couple of minutes to crisp up. Serve.
