Yorkshire puddings with Sunday roast beef

This week in Great British Bake Off was batter week.

Our household love pancakes and Yorkshire puddings so it was something I felt comfortable baking with little stress on 1 foot!

As it’s getting chillier we had our first roast in a long time and after seeing all the delicious beef dishes on GBBO I decided to go for Yorkshire puddings with parsnips, carrots, roast potatoes and roast beef with a dollop of horseradish sauce.

My recipe is pretty old, I got it about 7 years ago and have used it since and it always rises! These are so easy to make too that I haven’t brought the premade version in years!

Yorkshire puddings


  • 112g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml milk
  • Pinch of salt


  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well
  • Heat oven to gas mark 6
  • Heat some oil in a 12 slot cake tray
  • When the oil is hot use an ice cream scoop to put the mixture in the oil, 1 scoop per slot
  • Cook until golden and well risen, about 10-15 minutes - do not open the door until cooked!
  • Fill with your delicious fillings or serve with your roast dinner

Typically they didn’t rise as well as they normally do however all 12 were demolished by the 4 of us, including Ethan eating 3 to himself.

Yorkshire puddings are really easy to make and something that everyone can do 🙂
