Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Best Yorkshire pudding recipe is a search term I discovered from the analytics data provided by us through Squeaky Chair Productions. Naturally, we will use the data to create recipes, because that is a good indication of what people are looking for.

Now you have a quick background of what we do and why we decided to publish this Yorkshire pudding recipe. We made it our own, in the sense that we created mini versions of the Yorkshire puddings. They are less likely to fail and easier to prepare. They also look better. Kids love it.

The name Yorkshire pudding is a bit confusing, suggesting it is a pudding or a dessert, but actually it turns out to be a side dish made from a batter of eggs, flour, and milk or water. The description may not be entirely accurate as well; the exact origins of the Yorkshire Pudding are unknown, the general consensus being that it is a dish associated with the North of England.

My experience with eating Yorkshire pudding is limited, however, I have enjoyed the puddings with actual British people, and from what I can remember, it is a recipe reserved for special occasions like Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I would also like to let you in on another secret about Yorkshire pudding. Resting the batter overnight is key to developing a better flavor. Forget about cold batter: letting it rest at room temperature helps it rise taller as it bakes. A combination of milk and water gives the Yorkshire puddings extra rise and crispness.

I can also tell you that in my experience, the best gravy to serve with Yorkshire puddings is a rich onion gravy.

We let out all our secrets and shared what we know about Yorkshire pudding. Now we would like to hear your feedback, please.

  1. Grease 6 metal pudding moulds with the dripping or oil, then divide the remaining dripping or oil between the moulds. Preheat the oven to 220° Celsius, placing the moulds in the oven so the dripping can melt while the oven heats
  2. Sift together the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Break the eggs into the well, add the milk and beat, gradually drawing in the flour from the side to make a smooth batter.Remove the moulds from the oven and spoon in the batter until they are about half full
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes without opening the door, until the puddings are well risen, puffed and golden brown. Served immediately, as they will collapse if left to stand
  4. serve as a side dish to roast beef and rich onion gravey
