How to make the perfect Yorkshire puddings
Everyone can make perfect Yorkshire puddings.
Yorkies need basic store cupboard ingredients that most people will have in, so there's no reason not to at least try them.
Because they are super quick to cook, you don't need to worry about timings too much.
If you're having a Sunday roast, once you've taken your meat out it's time to crank up your oven and get your Yorkshires cooking.
There are a few things to get your batter ready and a couple of things to keep in mind to get it right.
Hot, hot, hot

You must have a HOT oven. When I say hot, I mean hot, hot!
You need to have a preheated oven at 215 °C; you need to preheat your non-stick Yorkshire Pudding tray and have hot oil too.
Having a hot oven will make sure your Yorkshires can cook perfectly.
Get it smooth
The batter is a simple mix of flour, eggs and milk.
You can whisk it by hand or use an electric mixer.
It doesn't really matter how you mix it, but you need to batter to be very smooth. That's why it's best to sieve your flour.
You're aiming for the batter to run off the back of a spoon and have a lovely glaze to it.
Have a rest
You need to make sure your Yorkshire batter has some time to rest.
Once you've got your batter made, try to leave it alone for at least 30 minutes.
If you can leave it an hour, or even overnight, then it's better.
Allow it to rest covered in the fridge, although it doesn't matter too much if it's really cold before you cook it.
The longer you can leave it, the better your Yorkshire puddings will rise, and you will get a better texture when they're cooked.
Can you make Yorkshire puddings in advance?
Absolutely, you can make Yorkshire puddings in advance.
Make your batter and cook your Yorkies as usual, then allow them to cool completely on a cooling rack.
Once they've cooled down, pop them into a freezer bag or freezer-proof container and they can freeze ok for a month.
Just remember to add a date, so you know when you need to use them up.
When it comes to reheating them, place them in an oven heated to 200°C for 6-8 minutes.
