Step 2

Make The Batter

Place a muffin tray onto a large baking tray and place into the oven to preheat. Fill a ramekin with plain flour, remember the level by eye. Whisk the flour in a bowl with 1 tsp of salt. Crack enough eggs into the ramekin to fill to the same height the flour was, then add to the flour and whisk to combine. Fill the same ramekin with milk to the same level again, then whisk that into the flour and egg mixture. Pour the batter through a sieve into a jug.

Step 3

Cook The Yorkshires

Pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into each muffin tray hole and return to the oven to heat up for 2-3 minutes. Pour the batter into the hot oil in the muffin cases so that they are 1/3 filled and return to the oven as quickly as you can to bake for 15 minutes. (Do not open the oven halfway through.)
