Yorkshire puddings

125g flour
Pinch salt
3 large eggs
200 ml milk

This recipe normally calls for 2 eggs but we follow Jamie Oliver's advice and add an extra egg.

Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl.
Make a well in the centre.
Break eggs into the well.
Mix adding the milk gradually until batter is smooth.
Let the batter stand for about an hour.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Place a little oil into each individual section of a muffin pan.
Place into oven until oil is smoking i.e. hot.
Quickly give the batter a last stir and then divide the batter among the individual sections of the muffin pan. Work quickly so that the oil does not cool too much.
While cooking do NOT open the oven.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and risen.
Serve with a roast and gravy.
Some people pour jam or syrup into the middle and eat as a dessert.
