Roast Beef and Horseradish Sauce filled Yorkshire Puddings (GBBO Week 4)

So I'm not from up North.. maybe that's why these, what I thought would be easy, yorkshire puds, didn't turn out as expected! Well, that's my excuse anyway! 

This week for the Great British Bloggers challenge, it was batter week. IT was a choice between Yorkshire puddings, which was the signature challenge in the Great British Bake Off, laced pancakes from the technical and churros from the showstopper. 

I chose the Yorkshires because I always end up doing these posts on a Sunday, and thought they'd make a nice addition to our Sunday Roast, obviously!! I didn't fancy the lace pancakes as I don't think anyone would come on my blog searching for those. And churros..well, I just couldn't be bothered with all the deep-fat frying! Haha! 

So puds it was. I think my problem with these is that I put too much oil in the pan, therefore sort of drowning them slightly and hindering them to rise as much as they should. So remember, only add a tiny bit of oil! Also, my oven is crazy, and is always too hot; that's why some of them got a tad burnt!! Oh well.. I'm sure i'd be going home on this round if I was on the show! 

You will notice that I also made one with a roast potato and a carrot - this is just me trying out the 'roast dinner' Yorkshire. You can do this too if you are having a roast when you make them. 

Here's what I did...


Joint of beef
Horseradish sauce

Vegetable oil
2 large eggs
100g plain flour
100ml milk
sea salt
ground black pepper


1. Roast your beef until medium rare and slice into thin slices once left to rest.

2. Pre-heat your oven to 220 degrees/200 fan. 

3. Add a tiny amount of oil into a fairy cake tin and heat in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until sizzling hot.

4. Make the batter in the meantime: mix the eggs, flour, milk and salt and pepper until smooth.

5. Once the oil is hot, pour into the tins evenly, ensuring you don't take too long to do this, and bake in the oven for 12 minutes, or until risen and golden brown. 

6. Once baked, roll up your slices of beef and slot into the Yorkshire. Add a spoonful of horseradish sauce on the side. Serve!

I'm linking these up with Mummy Mishaps for the Great British Bloggers Challenge.
