Take a look at our easy Yorkshire pudding recipe too, which have just four ingredients.


  • 20g beef dripping or 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 100ml full-fat milk
  • 50ml sparkling water
  • 115g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Put the dripping or oil into the holes of a 4-hole Yorkshire pudding tin or deep, 6-hole muffin tin and place in the oven for 5 minutes or until the fat or oil is really hot and smoking.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the milk and sparkling water in a jug. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Season the eggs with black pepper. Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in the eggs and whisk, drawing in the flour as you go. Gradually whisk in the milk mixture, until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Transfer the batter to a jug. Pour into the hot tin, filling each hole no more than three-quarters full. Cook, without opening the oven door, for 20-25 minutes or until risen, deep golden and crisp. Serve hot.
