A couple of week’s ago I share our timings for the perfect roast dinner and I promised you all my Yorkshire Pudding recipe. Now it’s taken a while to perfect this and for years we have had OKish Yorkshire’s or Batter Puddings with our roast. But since moving to the new house I’ve been experimenting A LOT in the kitchen and have perfected it. So here goes our Recipe for the Perfect Yorkshire Puddings – don’t forget that at the end of the post you can print off the recipe and add to your recipe binder.

What made the difference – the quantities of ingredients, I wasn’t using enough eggs and too much milk.

Switching things around and it works just have a look at them – they look and taste amazing.

It really is amazing what a difference a little change can make. These were made to my kids liking they like them a little softer in the centre whereas if it’s my husband and myself only we go for crunchy.

I have tried the recipe both in a muffin tin to produce 12 small Yorkshire Puddings which would be perfect as an appetizer as a mini toad in the hole or use a traditional Yorkshire Pudding Pan which makes 4 delicious batter puddings.
