Once you’ve mastered making the batter for this classic dish, you can use it to make Toad in the hole and crepes.

Isabel’s Yorkshire pudding batter mix is perfect for making tasty Yorkshires and Toad in the hole, which are traditionally baked using lard or dripping. You’ll need a good layer of fat in the base of the tin. The batter can be used also to make French pancakes – delicious served savoury or sweet.

Yorkshire puddings

Ingredients

For the Yorkshire pudding & Toad in the hole batter:

100g of mix

160ml of milk or milk *substitute

2 medium/large size eggs

2 tsp vegetable oil per pudding

(Suggestion *Almond milk)

For the crepes batter:

100g of mix

160ml of milk or milk *substitute

20ml water

2 medium/large size eggs

Method

Pre-heat oven to 200ºC/400 ⁰C/Gas Mark 6. Add the vegetable oil to each cavity of a 12-hole muffin tray. Heat the tray on the top shelf of the oven until the oil is sizzling hot.

Place the mix into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the eggs and then slowly add the milk, whisking thoroughly until smooth. If using a blender add the milk and egg to the blender jug first, and then add the flour mix.

Pour the batter into the hot oil filling each tray cavity by one-third. Return the tray quickly to the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden brown.

Isabel’s tips

For the best results and the perfect Yorkshire pudding shape, please note that a successful rise comes from quickly adding the batter into hot oil and returning the tray into a hot oven, which is not more than 200ºC. (Oven temperatures are guidelines only as appliances may vary; as always take care when handling hot ingredients)

Leaving the batter standing for a period of time before cooking can make swell and thicken, if that happens just add a little more milk. The batter should thickness should be something between double and a single cream consistency.

This batter does not require an oven hotter than 200C for making Yorkshire puddings.
