Yorkshire pudding

First of all I have to admit I always thought Yorkshire pudding was something similar to what we call ‘puding’ here in Hungary: being a sweet, milk based dessert. Thus I didn’t really bother looking up the recipe as I’m not a huge fan of this type of dessert 🙂 However, watching one of Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meals show last night, these puffy things captured my attention immediately (seemingly super easy and yummy) and I did not hesitate a minute putting down the recipe to try it for us:


1 cup white flour
1 cup milk
1 egg
salt, pepper

1. Brush the holes of a cupcake pan with vegetable oil, put it in the oven at 240°C
2. Pour the flour, milk, egg, salt and pepper into a blender (yes, a blender, don’t be surprised, it is a Jamie recipe after all:)) and mix it until all blended well
3. Remove the pan from the oven (careful, the oil will sprinkle and all and the pan is hot!)
4. Fill the cupcake holes with the batter (this amount of batter was enough to fill 7 holes for me)
5. Put the pan back in the oven and marvel at the speed of growth
6. Do not open the oven door until the puddings are golden brown
7. Once ready, remove the pan from the oven and let it rest for a minute until the puffs put on their signature shape (that being: a puff with a hole in the middle)

Traditionally you can serve it with meat and gravy – I didn’t have to worry about what to serve it with, we enjoyed them fresh out of the oven without anything else. I will definitely do it again!!
