Yorkshire Pudding

This is the recipe a friend of mine makes and it is the best I've had. Enjoy!

1 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
2 eggs
1 tsp salt

Mix til smooth.

Fill the muffin tin quite high. You will only get 8 or so yorkshires with this recipe. If you want more, it is easy to adjust.

Technically you are suppose to use beef drippings in the pan. Doesn't matter how you grease the tins, as long as they are greased. Bake them at 400ish until done, 15 minutes or so. Til golden brown.

I believe one of the tricks for Yorkies it to make sure the pan & the fat is very hot before adding the batter.

One more tip - one of my co-workers is British & her cousin came over for a visit last year. They advised me to make Yorkshire Pudding in a baking dish - a regular 9" X 13" dish - to make it easier. And to use bacon grease for the fat part. It works great! I'm always so amazed at how the thing puffs up & how good it tastes with so few ingredients.

For a twist, use self raising flour, and half fill the tray instead.

It's a bit like the pan sized Pizza's or the thin crust pizzas. You will find that kids love the self raising flour variant, whereas I and many others prefer the flat style.

We make big ones, we have a round casserol dish with a lid, chuck the dish and turn the lid upside down, you can grease it with vegetable oil, put it in the oven for 10 minutes to heat up, then pour in the batter. It acts like a heavy based utensil, making the heat more dissipated and less likely to burn and stick.

Best way to enjoy it is with roast beef. Cut yourself a peice of beef, and an equal size piece of pud, and tell me it isn't heaven...

Thanks Ishbel for another great recipe!! When it comes to the delicacy from the British Isles, you never fail to deliver!!

I just don't cook beef in this way, we are not too much of "beefeaters" (I know the Yorkshire pudding are most famous served with the Roast Beast, but I had some alternative accompaniments in mind... ) so I may try using pancetta dripping or lard.

Oh, I can't wait to try this!!

Urmaniac- try a search for 'Toad in the Hole' - I'm sure I posted a version here a long time ago! You could probably use local Italian sausages, in place of British style snags!
