    Tried again last night.
    More batter seemed to improve things.
    80% rim this time.
    Filled with chilli con carne this time.

    I don't think my oven is very accurate on temperature.
    Used a proper digital oven thermometer and 200degC only seemed to be 180degC and it had trouble maintaining that.

    Anyway, surley in Preston they should be Lancashire Puddings.

    I don't think you can have too hot an oven. I once had a gas oven in Spain without a thermostat that just got hotter and hotter and it made great Yorkshires. I just set mine to max now and heat the fat to smoking hot before I put the fridged batter in so that it really sizzles and the edges start to rise straight away,

    That's how i make my Yorkshires the scary hot fat makes all the difference and I've learnt it best to wear an apron otherwise any hot splashes put burn marks on your favourite fleece.
