We have these bad boys on a Sunday served as a “starter” before our main roast dinner. And we always have my Onion Sauce with them.


*UPDATE* 2024! This blew my mind…! You DO NOT Need a Smoking Hot Oven & Oil!! Follow this easy “COLD” recipe for perfect results every time!


Also the ingredients are simple. You need EQUAL parts egg/milk/flour. So use a mug to get the quantities perfect.

For example: Break three eggs into a coffee/tea mug and see where they come to in the mug. That is the height line you need of both milk and flour.


  • Plain Flour
  • Free Range Eggs
  • Whole or Semi-Skimmed Milk
  • Pinch of Salt & Pepper
  • A Little Oil


Step 1

Add all ingredients in to a food processor and blitz until combined & smooth. Leave batter to rest in fridge until you're ready to cook.

Step 2

When you're ready to cook your puddings pre-heat the oven to a high heat of about 190° Once mixed leave the batter to "rest" for at least an hour. (The longer the better - you can even leave the mixture over night)

Step 3

Put a little oil in your pudding tins of choice (COLD) then pour in your batter mix - Again COLD! Then place in the pre-heated oven.

Step 4

After about 10 - 15 minutes your puddings will be rising and starting to colour- if they are open the door to let out a blast of heat/smoke/steam - Then turn the heat down to 180° and allow the puds to cook for about another 10 - 15 minutes. When the fat is smoking hot take the trays out and quickly spoon 2tbsp into each mould and place trays back in the oven. I then throw in a small splash of cold water into the bottom of the oven, which creates a plume of steam (this will help create massive puds!) TIP: Speed is of the essence here! Get your tins out and back in ASAP keeping the oven heat up by opening/closing the oven door quickly!

Step 5

TIP: Use your eyes! If they look cooked they will be!

I just like cooking great food..
