The secret of a delicious Yorkshire pudding is a very hot oven, smoking hot grease/fat, and the right mixture of eggs, milk, and flour. It is crispy and light and delicious.

How to Make Yorkshire Puddings:

  1. Measure your eggs into a large measuring bowl (usually 4 whole eggs).
  2. Measure exactly the same amount of milk as eggs.
  3. Measure out exactly the same amount of all purpose flour as eggs.
  4. In other words, if your eggs measured 1 cup, then you’d want a cup of milk and a cup of flour.  Now you have the three key ingredients for never-fail Yorkshires… but there’s more!
  5. Using a mixer, blend together the eggs and the milk and add a pinch of salt.  Let that sit on the counter to rest in a bowl for about 10 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, take out a 12 cup muffin tin or a 6 popover popover tin.
  7. Pinch off about a pea size bit of beef fat, lard or, if you want, you can use vegetable oil (approximately 1/2 tsp in each cup. Veg oil does not impart the roasted meat taste, but it is a decent substitute if you need one.
  8. Now, your egg mixture should have rested long enough.
  9. Now it’s time to add the flour, but you’ll want to sift it quickly into the egg/milk mixture.
  10. Use your hand mixer and incorporate the flour, eggs, and milk together well until the consistency is like a thick cream. Let this mixture rest on the counter for at least 30 minutes or longer.
  11. About 15 minutes before you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  12. Pop in the tin with the fat on the bottom and put in the hot oven until it starts to smoke.  This takes about 10 minutes.
  13. Remove the tin and quickly fill each cup about half way. You’ll know the pans are ready if you hear the batter sizzle as you pour it in.
  14. Return the pan quickly to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  15. Whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN while they bake.
  16. You can watch the show through the glass door. After about 8 minutes, your Yorkies will begin to rise and they will emerge from your oven gorgeous, browned, and crisp. Enjoy!
