These are my nanna's and mother's Yorkshire pudding recipes. I guess the problem with traditional recipes is that they are seldom very accurate. This does not produce a "popover" style Yorkshire pudding like I have found in North American restaurants. The result of the recipes below is the more traditional style--slightly eggy, and "fallen." My siblings and I MUCH prefer it this way. Batter resting time not included in preparation time.
- In a bowl combine flour and salt.
- With a handheld mixer add the milk, in a stream, until smooth.
- Add water and eggs and beat until combined well and bubbly.
- Let stand, covered, at room temperature for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 450°F
- Divide drippings among six muffin pan cups.
- Heat the cups in the oven until almost smoking.
- Beat batter until bubbly and divide among muffin cups.
- Bake 10 minutes in lower third of the oven without opening the oven door.
- Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for another 10 minutes until puffed, crisp and golden brown.
- Serve immediately.

I think this has to be an English soul food:) My Mother is from yorkshire. If there are not enough meat fats we always use lard. Put into a hot oven first in muffin pan or a metal pan at 425 till fat smokes.Then add batter helps batter to rise :)
Perfect! I was introduced to yorkshire pudding when I was a kid. We prepared it as part of our traditional Christmas dinner. My father wanted an alternative Christmas dinner compared to the traditional turkey/ham of the states....thus began the tradition of standing rib and yorkshire pudding. Since then I've had a difficult time finding a recipe that works as well as the one my mother followed. This one even got British approval from a friend from England. By the way, I consider yorkshire pudding as Britian's answer to cornbread...I'm from the south and dinner is not dinner without cornbread.
I made this for my mum who is English and she just loved it. I followed the Mum's Yorkshire Pudding steps. We had it with roast beef, veges and Impera_Magna's Brow Gravy Mix.
