Whisking up the Batter
Start by grabbing a big bowl and whisking up four beautiful fresh free-range eggs. We want to get some nice air into the batter, so make sure to use a big bowl. Then, add 200 milliliters of whole milk and 200 grams of plain flour. You can sift the flour to make it nice and light, ensuring no lumps are left behind. Whisk everything together until you have a smooth batter. Add a pinch of salt, and that’s it. Your batter is ready.
Transferring the Batter
To make pouring easier, transfer the batter from the bowl to a jug. This way, you’ll have more control when pouring it into the molds. Speaking of molds, remember to preheat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius and pour about one centimeter of sunflower oil (or any oil that can handle high heat) into each mold. This helps create the perfect Yorkshire pudding shape. Just gently and evenly pour the oil along the molds, making sure to coat every inch.
Cooking and Serving
Place the molds with the preheated oil in the oven for about 15 minutes, until the oil is piping hot. Then, carefully pour the batter into the molds, making sure it doesn’t touch the sides. This allows the Yorkshire pudding to rise evenly. The hot oil will cook the batter on the outside, while the heat from the oven will push the batter up the sides, creating that signature lift.
Let the Yorkshire puddings cook for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until they turn golden, crispy, and absolutely gorgeous. You’ll love the balance of crispiness on the outside and chewiness on the inside.
Now that you have the perfect Yorkshire puddings, let’s take it up a notch. Forget the usual accompaniments and try something more unique. Place some smoked salmon on a beautiful platter and prepare a simple sauce using sour cream, yogurt, or creme fraiche. Beat it up and add the juice of one lemon for a refreshing twist. Peel and grate some fresh horseradish over the salmon, adding a touch of contrasting fire and lightness. Mix it all up, sprinkle some fresh dill, and serve the hot Yorkshire puddings loaded with the sauce and smoked salmon. It’s a combination that will transport you to foodie heaven.
