Tips For Cooking Yorkshire Puddings.
This is such a super easy recipe, however like all simple things, it can still go wrong. So here are a few hints and tips to get your Yorkshire puddings perfect.
When mixing make sure you get ALL the lumps out, you are looking for a consistency similar to cream or milkshake so its pours, but has a slightly heavy consistency not watery.
Once made keep your batter in the fridge, this can be all day, but as long as it’s at least 1 hour. You can make the batter 24 hours in advance as long as you keep it in the fridge.
You will get better Yorkshires with dripping, yes olive oil works, but they are always that bit tastier with dripping.
Make sure your oven is HOT before putting your pan in, also make sure your oil is HOT before adding your mixture to the muffin tray. If the oil or dripping is not hot enough the puddings will not rise.
Try to avoid opening the oven whilst the puddings are rising.
Can You Freeze Yorkshire Puddings?
Yes, you can make in batches and freeze for a month. Once cooked allow them to cool and put in airtight containers. To reheat put the frozen Yorkshire puddings onto a baking tray and cook at 200c for 8 minutes until thoroughly warmed through.
