This guide to cooking our Yorkshire Puddings is a great way to ensure your Yorkshires are golden, fluffy and perfectly risen, without the fear of burned rims or soggy bottoms. Read on to learn how to make Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Puddings just as well as if you’d put in the hours to make them from scratch.


How to make our Yorkshire Puddings

1. Preheat your oven

Preheating your oven might not seem like a very important step. In fact, if you’re in a hurry, you might be tempted to miss it out entirely. However, preheating your oven in advance and allowing it time to reach the correct oven temperature to cook Yorkshire Puddings is one of the most essential things you can do to ensure your Yorkshires get a perfect rise.

With that in mind, preheat your oven to the temperature stated on the back of your pack.


2. Remove Yorkshire Puddings from packaging

Remove all packaging from the product, and empty the Yorkshires onto a baking tray. Our Yorkshire Puddings come in a variety of sizes and quantities, from classic to giant, so make sure that your baking tray is big enough to avoid any overlap.

Spread out evenly to ensure equal heat distribution, and place the baking tray on the top shelf.


3. Cook Yorkshire Puddings

Set a timer to measure your preferred Yorkshire Pudding cooking time. Our frozen Yorkshire Pudding cooking time is shown on the reverse of your pack.



When the time is up, carefully remove your perfectly risen, deliciously crispy Yorkshire Puddings from the oven and make sure they’re piping hot before serving immediately. And there you have it! Beyond-simple to make Yorkshire Puddings that guarantee perfect, home-style results.
