Calories 196 kcal


  • Muffin tin (see details above)


  • 75 ml milk dairy
  • 40 g active sourdough starter
  • 1 medium egg
  • 40 g flour
  • 4 tbsp odourless oil like vegetable, rapeseed or sunflower


  • Preheat the oven to 230°C Fan. Pour a tbsp of oil into each of the muffin tin holes. Then pop the tin in the oven to heat up the oil. It needs to be very hot before you pour the batter in.
  • Heat the milk until just warm in a microwave or in a saucepan on the hob.
  • Whisk warm milk, sourdough starter and an egg together. Then add flour and a pinch of salt, and mix just enough to combine.
  • When the oven is preheated and the oil is hot, using a ladle, divide the batter into the muffin tin wholes and promptly pop the tin back in the oven. Take care as the oil might spatter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 190°C Fan. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove the Sourdough Yorkshire Puddings from the tin immediately so they don't soak up any excess oil and serve.
