How many recipes online start with the line "my mother used to make these?" Unfortunately this one is going to as well. When we had a holiday meal at my house growing up my brother and I have literally come to blows over these delicious little puddings. We are grown men now and I'd like to believe we are beyond that but I might still consider throwing down with him if I felt that he was getting more than his fair share of these. Not terribly proud of that, but it is probably true.
Gather the Good Stuff
- 200ml / 140g plain flour
- 4 eggs
- 200ml 2% milk
- Sunflower or peanut oil
- Salt and pepper
Putting it Together
- Heat oven to 230C
- Grease up a 12 hole muffin tin and leave a little bit of oil in the bottom of the muffin hole
- When the oven is fully to heat, place the tin in the oven to get it good and hot. Don't under heat this or the puddings wont work out
- Meanwhile make the batter. Add 140g flour into a bowl and beat in 4 eggs until smooth
- Slowly begin to add 200ml milk and continue to mix until the batter is lump-free. Season with salt and pepper.
- Transfer batter into a jug or something easy to pour from
- Remove the hot tins from the oven. Carefully pour the batter into the holes trying to add even amounts to each hole
- Return the tin to the oven and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes until the puddings have risen up and are golden brown.
