Sustenance Sunday

Yorkshire pudding is a classic staple in an English Sunday Roast dinner.  That is not to say that many people still make them a regular part of their dinners, but I've been known to romanticize traditions, so in my mind everyone eats these every night for dinner.  Including us. (not really)

In honor of my British-loving heart, here is a recipe for you all to try out your very own Yorkshire pudding, courtesy of BBC Good Food.

{ side note: I find it funny that the Brits call them Yorkshire Pudding, because they also use the term 'pudding' to refer to dessert, generally. Huh, interesting. Okay, tangent over. }


200g plain flour
3 eggs
300ml whole milk
2 tbsp olive oil


1.  Place the flour in a bowl and stir in the eggs, followed by the milk.  Swap your wooden spoon for a wire whisk and beat until smooth. Cover and chill for 10 minutes or until ready to cook.

2.  Heat oven to 220C/gas mark 7. Divide the oil between a 6-hole muffin tin and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Top the batter into a jug, then quickly pour into the heated tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes until well-risen and browned, making sure they are cooked all the way through.

3.  Serve hot. Enjoy!
