14 days of Christmas, day 8; Yorkshire puddings

Up until a few weeks ago Yorkshire puddings remained firmly off my plate. I don’t know what it was about them but I just found them to be undesirable. But, a visit back to the UK changed my mind.

I found Yorkshires to be tasty and perfect for my roast dinner – it’s amazing how taste buds change as you grow up – so I began looking at how to make them and they seemed so easy.

Homemade Yorkshire puds are not expensive which makes them ideal. They work well with any roast dinner or even as a dinner in itself. But for the sake of Christmas you would simply have them as a accompaniment.

Ingredients: self-raising flour, plain flour, eggs, milk and spray light oil (can use olive oil instead).

Method: Mix 4 tbsp plain flour and 2 tbsp self-raising flour. Make a well in the middle of the flour and put 3 eggs and 100ml of milk in the centre. Whisk until light and fluffy, may need to add more milk to make it a thick consistency. Put oil into a muffin tray and spoon the mixture into each one and then cook on a high heat for 30 minutes.

Where to shop: ASDA £2.54 | Tesco £2.24 |  Sainsbury’s £2.35

The average price for 12 homemade Yorkshires is £0.54, they take 30 minutes to cook which is longer than shop bought but you know exactly whats gone into them, so it why would you buy pre-made ones?
