Nigella's Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Nigella's Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Nigella's recipe makes the best Yorkshire pudding mix. Not only do we do them with sausages for Toad in the Hole, but I have done it with lamb chops and pork chops. Lots of gravy and it is yummy. As kids we used to eat the left over Yorkshire pudding with golden syrup.

  • 325 ml low fat milk.
  • 4 eggs
  • Half teaspoon salt

Beat this altogether and leave to stand for 15 minutes.

  • Add 250g flour.

You can use this recipe in muffin tins or in one large container. Yorkshire pudding must be poured into hot fat and put into a hot oven.
