We dive into English cuisine and get started with a classic! Yorkshire pudding recipe with onion gravy, the title pudding suggests something different from what we Dutch know. The basis for this can mainly be explained by language and the use of language. In England they often fill this type of “puffs” with gravy and it is served with a “Sunday roast”. The recipe is very simple, you just have to follow a few steps to get them perfect from the oven.

For inspiration for this recipe for Yorkshire pudding with onion gravy, I took a look at Jaimy Oliver. One of England's most famous chefs. He had a very simple method for baking them, and you can have the perfect puddings from the oven in half an hour. Which may be a bit crazy for us, but in England they often fill them with gravy. You can also break them open and cover them with some salmon, for example.

If you make the puddings with a sausage in them, they are called a “toad in a hole”. These puddings are also super fun to make for an English-inspired Christmas menu, for example. With only a few ingredients, you don't really need much to make them.

You need:


  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tl salt
  • 100 ml Full Milk
  • 100 gram flower - sieved
  • sunflower oil

For the onion gravy:

  • 2 onions - cut into half rings
  • 800 ml beef boullion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 50 gram butter
  • 2 el sunflower oil
  • 1 el Brown sugar
  • 1 el balsamic vinegar
  • 3 el cornstarch
  • peper

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Preheat your oven to 230 degrees.
  • Fill a muffin tin (note: no silicone material, but the steel version) with approximately 1,5 cm of sunflower oil per compartment and place it in the oven on a baking tray. This makes the oil very hot! leave it in for at least fifteen minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the salt and milk until very fluffy, sift in the flour and beat with a whisk until you get a nice lump-free batter. Pour this into a measuring cup.
  • Wearing gloves, remove the baking tin with the muffin tin from the oven and carefully pour a layer of batter into each compartment. Please note that because the oil is very hot, it will immediately start to bubble.
  • Place the baking tin with the filled muffin tins immediately back in the oven and lower the temperature to 190 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes until the puddings have risen and are golden brown.
  • In the meantime we make the gravy. Cut the onions into half rings.
  • Melt the butter with the oil in a frying pan and fry the onions until translucent. Add the bay leaves and then the sugar and balsamic vinegar. Fry until the onions caramelize a little.
  • Add the stock and stir well, let it cook gently over a low heat.
  • Mix the cornstarch in a bowl with 3 tablespoons of water and add this paste to the onion gravy just before your puddings are ready in the oven. Using a wooden spoon, stir the gravy to the desired thickness and season with pepper.
  • Remove the puddings from the oven and let them drain on a paper towel, then serve with some onion gravy poured into the holes of the puddings.
  • Delicious bites!
