I discovered that I have an RM 50 Sunshine Supermarket voucher that is going to expire today, on the 31st July 2014. I don’t normally shop for groceries there, because their items are less fresh compared to Jusco / Giant. So… I went there, and spontaneously decided to buy some baking utensils.
I couldn’t wait until weekend to break it in, so I decided to bake something simple. So, Yorkshire pudding it is!
Ingredients (for 6 puddings):
- 2 eggs
- Sunflower oil
- Pour sunflower oil onto individual muffin tin in the muffin tray. DO NOT use olive oil, need oil that can be heated more than 200 degree Celsius. DO NOT copy Jamie’s method of filling up 1 row and then slanting the tray to get the oil over to other rows! Your oil will more likely end up on the floor!
- Preheat the tray in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for 15 minutes.
- While waiting, crack 2 eggs into big mixing bowl.
- Add flour and milk into the bowl. To determine how much flour and milk to use, you need to first crack the egg first to see how much egg you have. 1/3 egg, 1/3 flour, 1/3 milk is the right portion! DO NOT use self raising flour, it will have the opposite effect!
- Whisk the mixture for a few minutes, until the surface become filled with bubbles.
- When the muffin tray has been heated enough, take the tray out. Pour the mixture into individual muffin tins. Watch the fireworks every time the mixture hits the oil, that’s one of the fun part!
- Put the tray back into the oven. Set to 25 minutes, still at 200 degree Celsius.
LET THE WAITING BEGIN!
The preparation part is actually really easy. The baking part is the most nerve wracking, it is like watching a kid grow up. You have to constantly watch over those little kids and pray that they will grow properly, and when they eventually do, you will feel so proud, satisfied and excited!
Look at the end products, aren’t they just lovely?
If you are not familiar with Yorkshire pudding, you might think: This is not a pudding! It looks like a piece of bread! Well, that is how a nice Yorkshire pudding is supposed to look like, crispy on the outside, fluffy and soft on the inside.
The Brits usually serve them hot as part of the Sunday Roast,
or serve them cold with something sweet, like fruit jam, custard or honey. Me? I prefer to have them cold with a nice cup of Kopi O (dark coffee).
