- 12 tsp sunflower oil
1. Preheat your oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7
2. Add the flour and salt to a bowl, mix together and create a small well in the middle
3. Crack the eggs into the well and pour in a small amount of the milk, whisking all the mixture together until smooth. Continue to add all of the milk, then transfer the mixture into a pouring jug
4. Pour a teaspoon of sunflower oil into each hole of the 12-bun tray and place into the oven to for 5-10 minutes, until the oil is piping hot
5. Once hot, pour the batter mixture into the 12 holes and place back in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the puds have risen and are golden brown
TOP TIP! Make sure you keep the oven door closed whilst your Yorkshire puddings are cooking, as the cooler air can make the puds collapse!
