Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with a classic British delight—Yorkshire puddings (or as they are also lovingly called—Yorkies)! Similar to a pop-over and made with just flour, milk, and eggs, these golden-brown beauties are the perfect accompaniment to a hearty Sunday roast or a delicious addition to any meal. Yorkshire puddings have been a beloved staple in British cuisine for centuries. With their crispy exterior and soft, fluffy interior, they make a great carbohydrate side dish. They might look intimidating to make, but it’s super easy! Simply whisk together the batter ingredients, then pour into hot oil. Bake until golden and puffy, and serve!

What is Yorkshire Pudding

Originally called ‘dripping pudding’, Yorkshire pudding is a British baked pudding made from eggs, flour, and milk (or water). A batter is made and is then baked in hot oil in the oven. It’s said the Yorkshire Puddings originated in the North of England.

Yorkshire Pudding Ingredients

  • Eggs – use large eggs
  • Milk – water can also be used
  • Flour – all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil – use a neutral vegetable oil (not olive oil)


Do not use olive oil for this recipe, it has a lower smoke point and will also give the Yorkshire Pudding a slight aftertaste.

Mix the batter until just combined, don’t overmix.

For a nice puff on the Yorkshire Pudding, the batter must be cold. Once mixed together, place the batter in the fridge while waiting for the oil to heat up.

Don’t add the oil to the oven before the oven is properly heated up. The oil should be really hot (slightly smoking).

If the Yorkshire Pudding is not rising enough, it could be that either the oil is not hot enough, or the oven is not hot enough.

Don’t leave the oven door open for too long when taking out the muffin tins.

How to Store Yorkshire Pudding

Store leftover Yorkshire Puddings in an airtight container (at room temperature) for up to 2 days.

Can You Freeze Yorkshire Pudding

Yes, you can! Yorkshire puddings freeze very well. Cool the baked Yorkshire Puddings, then freeze in a resealable Ziploc bag. To heat them (from frozen), place them in the oven at 200°C/400°F for about 5 to 10 minutes until crispy.

Can I Make It Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can! Simply store the cooked Yorkshire Puddings in the freezer until you’re ready to serve them.

What To Serve with Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkshire Puddings go well with classic British favorites like roast beef, roast pork, Lancashire Hotpot, and even Beef and Guinness Stew.
