With the holidays arriving before we know it, I wanted to share a yorkshire pudding recipe ahead of time. I first had yorkshire pudding when I went to England in college. I had no idea that yorkshire pudding was actually kind of like a pastry side dish and not an actual pudding. Anyway, I liked it so much that when I got home I told my mom about it and we’ve been making it ever since.
I use a recipe from cooks.com. You’ll need flour, salt, eggs, milk, and oil. The recipe is really easy, but time consuming because the batter needs to chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours so if you’re looking for something to throw together last minute this isn’t it. But if you have the time, just beat the flour, salt, eggs, and milk together until smooth. Then chill the batter in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Heat the oven to 450 and pour the oil into a Pyrex dish. Heat for 2 minutes and then pour the batter in to the hot dish. Bake for 20-30 minutes. That’s it!
The yorkshire pudding puffs up and is so lightweight. Most people eat it as a side dish to some meat such as a roast or prime rib. It’s a prime holiday side.
Are you a yorkshire pudding fan?
