Yorkshire Puddings, in a Mini Muffin Tin?
You read it right. Why not? Our Wilton Recipe Right Non Stick 24 Cup Mini Muffin Tins are an ideal alternative to the traditional Yorkshire pudding tins available today. The humble Yorkshire pud has been with us since 1737, and they haven’t changed much in the past 276 years. With the annual drive for many to lose weight in January, you can still enjoy this traditional Sunday luxury, just by making smaller versions.
Mini Yorkshire Puddings are also a kitsch alternative to canapés and vol au vents, especially when stuffed with a small slice of beef and horseradish. They look different, are quirky and prove to be a talking point at the buffet table.
Our Wilton Mini Muffin Tin is ideal; it’s heavy duty and has a non-stick coating. Cleaning the tin afterwards is so easy, and baking with one is simple. Use a Rotary Egg Beater to whisk 2 eggs into a measuring jug – add an equal measure of milk and whisk again. Finally, add plain flour; each of the three ingredients should make up one third of the final mix. Cover with clingfilm, and leave the mixture in the fridge for as long as possible – overnight is ideal. When it comes to baking, fresh ingredients are best.
When it’s time to cook your puddings, add a small amount of oil or lard into each cavity in the tin. Both will expand when heated, so a little goes a long way. Place the tin into a very hot oven , 220 deg/Gas Mark 8 and leave until the oil/lard is smoking.
Give your mix a whisk and quickly pour into each cavity, leaving one corner free so you have a part of the tin to grab hold of. Place on the top shelf of your oven for approx. 12 – 15 mins. Resist the urge to open the door as your puddings will sink!
Cheap, homemade and much tastier than shop bought alternatives for sure.
