(Cheap and Easy)
Perfect Yorkshire Puddings
You will get a rise every time.
IntroductionThis is an occasional blog post to hopefully give you readers, simple, tested cooking ideas. I am not trying to teach you to suck eggs. Most of these posts will not be full recipes but just to show you how to do the basics right. I have tried different techniques by TV and Book Chefs that promised the perfect so and so, sadly most of them do not work. Below I will show the ones that worked. All these tips have been used a minimum of 10 times with constant results. I hope you find these useful. So here goes........
- 50g plain flour sieved
- 1 egg, room temperature (take them out of the fridge an hour our so before)
- Whole milk, semi-skimmed works, but NOT skimmed.
- Vegetable oil
- Salt to season (optional)
- large bowl
- Measuring Jug
- Electric whisk, or strong wrists and a wooden spoon
- 6 segment non-stick metal muffin type tin
- Kitchen scales
Big note if you want 12 Yorkshire puddings for a larger family, just DOUBLE all ingredients etc.
Prepare and cook time
- 20 to 30 minutes
You can make the mix up before hand if you like or make it just before you want to use it. If you make it up a few hours early don't put it in the fridge, just give it a whisk before you use it.
Anyway lets start. First, in a bowl sieve the flour to you get to 50g or just over. Set to one side. now crack both egg in the measuring jug. (Quick tip if you crack the egg on the work surface rather then the edge of the jug, you will not get any shell in the mix). Pour in the milk to it reaches the 150ml level. Add some salt, a little the first time, as you make it more and more you can learn how much you need for your own taste. Pour in the flour and use a electric whisk to mix to a smooth sort of single cream texture. If not electric whisk the pour mixture in a another largish bowl then add flower and mix by hand.
|Egg, plain flour, milk all mixed.|
|Oil in, ready to go in oven.|
|Hot oil, and mixture put in, be quick, then back in oven.|
|All done, crispy outside, fluffy inside. Cheaper, better than shop bought. ENJOY.|
