Yorkshire Pudding Recipe - Nigella Lawson

food nigella lawson recipe yorkshire puddings

This week it was the turn of Nigella Lawson's Yorkshire pudding recipe to be tested. I am a big fan of Nigella but I have to say that the results were a little disappointing this time.

Yorkshire Pudding Nigella Lawson

This recipe is from her book Feast: Food that Celebrates Life.

However, they hardly rose at all and were a bit on the heavy side and looked more like buns than Yorkshire puddings. Comparing it to the recipes from the other chefs I think there just wasn't enough milk in the recipe as the mixture was very thick.


  • Serves 8-10
  • 325ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 250g plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of beef dripping in each pudding tin hole


  • Whisk the milk, eggs and salt well and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Whisk in the flour and let stand again until you need it.
  • Heat the oven to 220 degrees C/gas mark 7 and put a 12 hole muffin tin into heat for a good 10-15 minutes.
  • Put 1/4 teaspoon beef dripping in each muffin compartment.
  • When the pan and the fat have been heated, pour in the Yorkshire pudding batter and cook for 15-20 minutes or until they have puffed up gloriously.
