Cooking with Kids - National Yorkshire Pudding Day

Yorkshire pudding batter is a great recipe to make with kids.  Dead simple.  Really inexpensive and delicious.

This is our no fail recipe, even MadDad and the Minimads make it with success every time.

Ingredients (makes 12 to 16 puddings)

115g of plain flour
Pinch of salt
3 eggs
275 ml of milk (or half milk and water)
  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and blend or whisk to a smooth consistency, kind of like single cream.
  2. Put the batter in the fridge to let the air bubbles settle.
  3. Heat your oven to its hottest setting and add some sunflower oil or lard to a Yorkshire pudding tin.  Place the tin in the oven and make sure the oil is very hot (smoking), pour the batter into the tins and place back in the oven.
  4. Leave at full temp for 5 minutes and then turn the oven down to 180 degrees for 20 minutes or until the Yorkshire puddings are golden and risen. 
The only part of this my boys do not do now is the oven bit.  We have yorkshire puddings most Sundays and I have not made the batter myself in the last two years!


  1. Love, love, love yorkshire puds, dinner just wouldn't be the same without them. I never add salt and have often thought about it and will give it a try next time.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
