Yorkshire puddings take a regular roast beef dinner and elevate it to something worth getting excited about, that and the gravy of course.
It took me many years of making yorkshire puddings to get them right, despite having expert guidance. But don’t worry they are worth every accident and experiment. Hey, even if you end up with hockey pucks once a year, they still taste pretty good.
Just a note, your family will eat all of these, whether there are 6 of you or 2 of you. At least, we (two) did. Consider yourself warned.
Yorkshire Pudding Recipe(12 puddings)
Make the yorkshire pudding batter at least 20 minutes before you are ready to make them and keep in the fridge.
In a large bowl place flour and mix in the salt. In a separate smaller bowl beat the egg and the milk together. Slowly whisk the liquid in to the dry so you end up with a smooth mixture. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons of melted butter or lard. Place in fridge for 20 minutes.
In the meantime heat your oven to 375F. Place a 12 cup muffin tin in the oven to get nice and hot. When you are ready to cook the yorkshires, carefully remove the muffin tin from the oven. Spray with cooking spray and drop a teaspoon of butter in each tin. Place back in the oven until hot and melted. Remove from the oven and quickly divide the batter between the cups. Place in the oven.
Don't open the oven for 25 minutes! They take about 30-35 minutes, but if you open the oven early you run the risk of them falling. Cook until golden brown. Remove and serve hot.
