A Roast Dinner just isn't complete without some of these amazing low calorie Yorkshire Puddings
I have to thank my dad for teaching me how to make Yorkshire puddings many years ago now. Our Sunday dinners always had the best Yorkshire pudding you have ever tasted, not just little single ones in a muffin pan, but a big huge one in a single dish, which we would all take a slice smothering it in his delicious homemade gravy.
I am seriously salivating just thinking about it.
Because there is nothing better than delicious golden Yorkshire pudding with gravy, right?
So what are the basic ingredients of Yorkshire pudding? It's simple - egg, flour and liquid, the liquid part usually being milk or a combination of milk and water.
Nothing complicated or hard to source it really is as easy as that.
But the most vital part of a successful Yorkshire Pudding is the hot tray to pour that batter into.
You really have to get it as hot as possible. Not hot enough and the Yorkshire pudding will not rise. Leaving you instead with what looks like a little flat pancake trying desperately to be a Yorkshire Pudding, but failing miserably.
I have recently started replacing all my baking trays with Nordicware, as it really is a superb quality that will last a long time and doesn't come with a hefty price tag.
I recently picked up a four piece set at Costco, but regularly browse my local Homesense (part of the TJ Maxx company) in the hope they have some of the more unusual trays in store and I was delighted to find a muffin tray recently, that I just knew would be perfect for these 1 SYN Yorkshire Puddings.
The ratio of ingredients is also pretty standard for Yorkshire Puddings and the easiest way to measure ingredients is by using a measuring jug as the ratio of flour to egg, to liquid is always 1:1:1. That simple!!
You can half the ingredients too to make less Yorkshire puddings if you like, or double or triple up to make more. As it's pretty easy to increase or decrease because it will always be a reduction or addition of an egg and then the other ingredients will follow from there.
First, crack in your egg or eggs and measure the volume, that volume is the key, add that to a bowl and then you need exactly the same volume again in flour and the same again in liquid.
If you don't have a healthy extra spare for a little drop of milk towards these, you'll be pleased to know they also work well with water.
Water actually makes them crispier, whereas milk will yield a fluffier Yorkshire Pudding.
Traditionally you would use oil, but again to keep the syns down I used spray oil. I tend to not add the spray oil though till the pan is hot because certain spray oils have a tendency to burn. But check the instructions for the type of spray oil you use, as different brands will vary.
Another tip is to not over whisk the batter, you only need to combine the ingredients, I then let the batter sit for at least 30 mins for the batter to come to room temperature, you don't want it too cold when you pour it into the hot pan.
If you want to make less than 10 Yorkshire puddings, then you just need to half the ingredients but use the same process of equal volume of eggs, flour and water.
These Low Calorie Yorkshire Puddings are also perfect for making in advance to freeze.

Had my reservations about this recipe actually working,but n only did it work, they actually taste great. Well Done Siobhan for yet another great take on a classic recipe.
Absolutely brilliant and so helpful love trying all, many thanks Siobhain for your on going recipies and appreciate your time given.
Taste great! If you freeze them, do you have any tips on how to reheat them please? Defrost first or put straight into the oven?
Shevy (Slimming Eats) says
yes straight into the oven from frozen is fine.
Linda Goldie says
Hi, I note that you spray the oil in the muffin tin after it had been in the oven. Is there a reason for this as I usually spray the tin while heating up ?
Shevy (Slimming Eats) says
It's just my preferred method, I find if you spray first, the spray oil has evaporated by the time you go to pour the batter and you don't get as good a result.
Why is it 60g of flour if its 100mls of water and 2 eggs should be approx 100g. Don't know if I'm just reading it wrong does it not need to be 100 mls/g of each?
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
something in mls will not weight the same in grams, you need to go by volume. I put the approx grams for each item by their volume, so you have an estimate to those items 🙂
I have never made Yorkshire puddings before as it always appeared to be a bit of a black as to whether or not they worked, but today I made the Slimming Eats Yorkshire puddings and they were easy to make and perfection when they came out of the oven. I even have extra to freeze. Thank you Siobhan
Charlotte Wrench says
Once again a recipe that worked out perfectly!!! Can’t believe how fantastic they are!! I’m over the moon! You really are a Genius x
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
thank you, this method always works without fail, so glad you like them.
Hi, would this work if I used the same method but with cornflour.. thankyou
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
no cornflour won't yield the same result, you definitely need regular flour.
Can these be frozen and how long for?
Made these yesterday and wow thank you!!
These looks amazing - do you use a normal cake tin that you put paper cases in when making small cakes or a deep cupcake tin or can you use either? Thanks
