This air fryer Yorkshire pudding recipe is an update, from the original air fryer Yorkshire pudding recipe that was published in the November of 2016. We have given it a facelift and also shown you how easy it is to cook frozen Yorkshire puddings in the air fryer. We hope you love our updated version!

I grew up in Yorkshire. I lived there from being a toddler until I was 22 years old. It is also where I met my husband Dominic and where our first child was born.

It has what feels like a lifetime of memories. Some good, some average and some bad. But hey that is life!

But growing up in Yorkshire (which for any of you Non-Brits is in the North East of England) it was all about the food.

The British bakery with its delicious homemade scones, sausage rolls and of course pasties. There was the seafront that sold the doughnuts and the lollies that the kids used to go nuts for in the summer months.

Though if dominic was reading this, he would be screaming at me that I have forgotten to mention the fish and chips!

As well as this we had beautiful countryside and an endless supply of outdoor fun. If you have ever watched Heartbeat and other popular British TV shows you would be able to relate to this.

But what is probably associated the most from a food point of view is the delicious Yorkshire Puddings that are traditionally served up with an English roast beef dinner.

Also, because they are made from simple pantry items no matter where you live in the world you would be able to get the ingredients to be able to make them!

Yorkshire puddings can be a bit like roast potatoes. At family gatherings you are always fighting over who gets the last one.

I used to be heartbroken when my mum didn’t make any at Sunday dinner.

She would point out that it is traditionally served with roast beef and you don’t need to have them with other meats. But I loved them so much there was no way I was missing out.

Now whenever we have a roast dinner Dominic is always there making his delicious roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings.

As he puts it you can never take Yorkshire out of the guy and I couldn’t argue with that!

Well if you would like to discover how easy it is to make them in the Air Fryer without having to rely on your oven then this is how us Milners do it!

What’s In Yorkshire Pudding?

I am sure you want to know first what’s in Yorkshire pudding and what all the fuss is about? Well Yorkshire Puddings have similar ingredients to savoury pancakes and is like a thick batter.

Compared to a classic pancake it carries more eggs so that they can puff up and not look like flat little boring things.

A Yorkshire pudding is crispy in texture and is often served with roast beef. Which is exactly what we are doing.

Here are our air fryer Yorkshire puddings below with air fryer roast beef:

What Ingredients & Gadgets Go Into Air Fryer Yorkshire Puddings?

There are 5 main ingredients that go into Air Fryer Yorkshire Puddings:

  • Eggs
  • Plain Flour
  • Milk
  • Salt & Pepper

As well as this we used our Philips Air Fryer XL to cook our Yorkshire puddings as well as some good Yorkshire Pudding Tins.

It is all about the batter. It must be nice and thick, well mixed and it is essential that the air fryer is preheated.

Frozen Yorkshire puddings work too. Essentially, they are already cooked and you are simply reheating them from frozen in the air fryer basket. You can use any brand that you like.

Instant Yorkshire pudding mix. You can also buy a Yorkshire pudding mix if you prefer. Though we enjoy making them and Yorkshire pudding mix is not always available to everyone.

Amazon Yorkshire Pudding Tin

I love Amazon for grabbing those quick kitchen tools and kitchen gadgets that I want to use in new and regular recipes. One of those kitchen tools is an Amazon Yorkshire Pudding Tin.

It is perfect for making Yorkshire Puddings, as well as for smaller muffins and other muffin tin recipes.

You can grab the Amazon Yorkshire Pudding tin that we recommend here.

Why Cook Yorkshire Puddings In The Air Fryer?

The air fryer is fantastic for Yorkshire puddings for many reasons.

Firstly, it is fantastic for a quick preheat so that your Yorkshire puddings will rise and look good.

Secondly there is the correct amount of space to be able to cook several at once. But thirdly, and best of all it makes your Yorkshire puddings so beautiful and crispy.

After cooking Yorkshire puddings in the air fryer, I won’t go back to the oven version.

Yorkshire Pudding Tips:

  • The batter matters – Terrible batter and you have terrible Yorkshire puddings. Make the effort with the batter and you have the best Yorkshire puddings that you have ever tried.
  • Cheat with frozen – Frozen Yorkshire puddings are cooked in a factory with the perfect amount of batter consistency and they never fail. Plus, they are already cooked so it is like reheating food in the air fryer.
  • Let the batter rest – if the batter is left for 30 minutes before being cooked it tends to thicken a little and improve the quality of the Yorkshire puddings.
  • Add an egg white – by doing so it will help heighten your Yorkshire puddings and put more body into them.

Pair our air fryer Yorkshire puddings with air fryer Brussel sprouts, air fryer roast potatoes and air fryer rotisserie chicken for the ultimate British roast dinner in the air fryer.

Reheating Yorkshire Pudding

If you have any Yorkshire pudding left over (doesn’t happen in my house) then I recommend that you reheat it in the air fryer. 3 minutes at 160c/320f is all it takes to reheat your leftover Yorkshires.

Or use them in our roast dinner leftover soup as that is magical!

Air Fryer Frozen Yorkshire Pudding

Air Fryer Frozen Yorkshire Pudding

To cook frozen Yorkshire Puddings in the air fryer is so simple. Grab your Yorkshire puddings from the freezer and load them straight into the air fryer. Set the time to 5 minutes and the temperature to 180c/360f and you are all set.  

There is no need to thaw your frozen Yorkshire puddings first and it takes some of the prep time away when making a roast dinner.

Best Ever Yorkshire Pudding

Cooking Yorkshire pudding in the air fryer is so simple:

  • Make the batter – Mix the plain flour and the seasoning in a bowl. Pour in the egg (a bit at a time) stirring gradually with a fork until the egg is all added. Add the milk a bit at a time and stir regularly until you have a mixture that is the thickness of a thick batter. Beat well until it forms bubbles on the top.
  • Preheat the air fryer – While you are making the batter preheat the air fryer, add in the Yorkshire pudding tins and then cook it in the batter. If the tins are not hot your Yorkshire puddings will not rise.
  • Cook and eat – While your Yorkshire puddings are cooking in the air fryer, finish plating up the rest of your roast dinner.

You can of course adjust for smaller or bigger ones. It is also important that your tins are sturdy otherwise when it is cooking the air will cause it to move and it will be an Air Fryer disaster!

Add an extra egg white to the batter and it will help improve how much your Yorkshire puddings rise.

  1. I’m not clear – does this recipe make one (medium) pudding that serves 6, or 6 (medium) individual ones, such as the 9 in the picture? (I’m American, I’m not sure what size medium is in this context.)

    • Hi Anne,

      The mixture should make 6 of the standard size Yorkshire puddings. Just the normal Yorkshire pudding tins.

      Kind regards


    • Hi Jennifer,

      These are the tins we used, they are the standard Yorkshire pudding tins: (Amazon affiliate link)

      A muffin tin can be used as an alternative or the medium sized Yorkshire Pudding tins that are divided into 4 instead of 12.

      I hope this helps.

      Many Thanks


  2. I made them in small ramekins.
    My parents are from the North of England and I often had these as a child.
    Your recipe and technique is 10 out of 10.

    • Hey Rohan,

      Yes it is quite a thin mix but we found this was the best way to get the puddings to cook evenly in the air fryer. With the heat coming from the top with the thicker mixture we tried, it burned on top and the puddings did not cook through where as the thin mixture worked much better 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    I c flour
    2 eggs
    12.c water
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 tsp of oil in the bottom of the pudding pans ( I bought silicon from Amazon.)
    put in 400 F oven heat 3 minutes,
    pour batter on pans, cook 400 for 15 minutes

    You can precook some sausage, put them in your cake pan and pour batter over them cook same temp and time and you have toad in the hole.

  4. Hi, I have just tried these and followed the recipe but mine did not rise, they had colour on top but middle not cooked at all ???? what have I done wrong?

    • Hi Kay,

      They could be a number of reasons. We make these and follow this recipe we use a Philips air fryer xl can i ask what kind of air fryer you are using and what kind of tins you used to cook the puddings in.

      Many thanks 🙂

  5. Yorkshire puddings in ninja foodie. I cooked on air fry for 15 minutes but bottoms were undercooked so i turned them over and cooked for a further 2 minutes and they were perfect.
