Individual Yorkshire Puddings Recipe

Individual Yorkshire Puddings Recipe
In the US, when one hears the term “Yorkie,” one thinks of a cute little yappy dog. In Britain, however, the term refers to the ubiquitous Yorkshire pudding, which is essentially a batter cooked in drippings or other fat, and is as essential to the traditional Sunday roast dinner as the roast. You can purchase them frozen in the UK, but the frozen ones aren’t very good, and those who want to eat good Yorkshire puddings would probably be best off to make them at home. The batter, which consists of eggs, milk, flour, and salt, is very simple, and is whizzed in the blender. It is then poured into hot fat: meat or poultry drippings, butter, or vegetable oil. While in the oven, the pudding puffs up.
One of the busiest food booths at the Manchester Christmas Market featured either a Turkey or Beef roast dinner piled inside of a 6-inch Yorkshire pudding (crisp roasted potatoes, carrots, peas, stuffing, onions, and lots of gravy). There were a few alternatives on the menu, including a Yorkshire pudding served with Golden Syrup. This one is a great dish to make at home, and is good for brunch if you happen to be having guests. Muffin top pans are ideal, but regular muffin pans can also be used. Serve crisp bacon or sausage alongside.

12 Servings

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup hot beef drippings, if serving with roast dinner, or butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Place the milk, eggs, flour, and salt in the blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively, you may use a food processor or mix the ingredients until smooth in a mixer or with a wire whisk.
  3. Divide the drippings or butter between the cups in a muffin-top pan, a Yorkshire pudding pan, or muffin pan.
  4. Place the pan in the oven to heat the fat.
  5. When the pan is piping hot, remove from the oven and divide the batter between the cups.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the puddings are crisp and brown. Serve hot with butter and golden syrup or roast beef or turkey and gravy.
