My Mum's Easy and Traditional English Yorkshire Pudding
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
6 ingredients
8-16 servings
Exactly as the title says, this is my Mum's Traditional English Yorkshire Pudding recipe and it is so easy. It is slightly different from my Toad-in-the-Hole batter recipe, the Yorkshire puddings in this recipe are lighter. (You need a more substantial batter for the addition of sausages!!) I have held off posting this for a while as it is so easy, but it works -please see my photo's! The great thing about this recipe is that it works on equal measures of volume and so there is no weighing or measuring as such. So, if there are only two of you, use a very small cup - if there are a crowd of you, use a big cup, jug or a mug!! Easy! One tip - ALWAYS make sure the oil/fat is SIZZLING hot before you pour in your batter; preheat your tins with the oil/fat before pouring in your batter......that's about it really! NOTE: (I have made the yield between 8-16 individual Yorkshire puddings, depending on the size cup you use. A tip - 4 beaten eggs will make about 8 to 10 Yorkshires.) N.B. My first reviewer quite rightly stated that Yorkshires are often cooked in a large dish/tin; traditionally UNDERNEATH the meat drippings actually!! But, my grandmother & my Mum also made very Traditional Yorkshires in special tins - as photographed; as I understand it, popovers are baked in smaller diameter tins - Yorkshire Pudding Tins have a diameter of at least 4" wide & generally only have 4 holes in a tray!!
