"This recipe has never failed me yet and you may also make this using melted butter in place of the roast pan drippings, no need to use any muffin tins for this, the complete batter is baked in one pan then sliced into eight pieces, plan ahead the batter needs to sit for 1 hour before using, you may refrigerate the batter overnight but you *must* allow it to come down to room temperature before using, make certain all your ingredients are room temperature... you will *LOVE* this!"

"Excellent. Turned out perfectly. I used half the recipe with 2 eggs and used a 6 large muffin tin to cook it in"
"I have tried every Yorsshire Pudding recipe and they have never risen properly. They all tasted good though...lol. I followed your recipe exactly and FINALLY!!!! The perfect fluffy Yorkshire Pudding!!! YOU ROCK KITTEN!!!!! Thank you soooooooo much! You have no idea how happy I am now!!!!"
"Great recipe. The pudding puffed up beautifully and tasted delicious. I think that next time I'll make them in individual muffins cups, though. Everyone seems to prefer the outside pieces."
"This was a terrific recipe. I think I prefer to do them individually in muffin tins, so next time I will... but I'll use this same recipe. I wasn't very good at guaging when to take them out of the oven in this one-big-pan format."
"I really don't know if I did this right at all... I grew up in a Dutch household on a sheep station in New Zealand so had no problems with the roast lamb LOL, I'd *heard* of Yorkshire pudding, I always assumed that this was the dessert that you had after the roast LOL !! whoo was I wrong there :)Ok, I had a go.... I followed the instruction to the letter: didn't have lard so used vegetable oil. I have normal sized muffin pans so used that and ended up with a puffed up cake-y things that was more or less a cross bewteen an omlette and a pancake ? It was quite dry and didn't taste of much. I have no idea how it should have tasted, but I am sad to say that we and our dutch guests didn't really take to this. I am off to Bristol, England for a long weekend in a few weeks so will look for this and if they have it there will try the real thing to see if I did things right. Sadly in the meantime we are not converted to this particular english food so I have to give 3 stars. Thanks for the learning experience :)"
"Kittencal this is awesome...made it a couple of weeks ago and am going to make it again tonight...my family gobbled it up and so did my guests...perfect and yummy.....thank you so much...love all your recipes..."
"These are mis-named and I am proof of that. First time I made them they were fine. Tonight, they were absolutely terrible and I threw the whole lot out! Exactly the same process, followed the recipe to the letter. Just turned out rubbery and horrible tonight."
"OMG...TO DIE FOR! Made this to accompany your Kittencal's Perfect Prime Rib Roast Beef (#82023) and it was superb. A MUST TRY recipe. I have failed miserably in the past with both popovers and yorkshire pudding but you were right when you named this one...it is never-fail and just sublime. Thanks for making our Christmas dinner a memorable one. Cooks like you are what make this such an amazing website. Happy holidays to you, Kitten! :-)"
"I have never made or even had Yorkshire pudding before. I was really skeptical because it sounds gross to me. But I am a believer now! This was amazing! DH loved it as well. I will be making this every time I make a roast. Easy, delicious, and wonderful!"
"I'll never make standard Yorkshires again. Easy and delicious and looks great when you bring it to the table to cut. Another Kittencal recipe that I have passed on to others!"
"After so many failures we had this at our last family dinner and it was the best thing on the table. This is without a doubt the best recipe I have tried yet. thank you for putting Yorkshire back on my table. I went with the melted butter. Everyone loved it!!"
"Next time I rate this I hope not to have the problems I did this time, so probably will upgrade to 5 stars. That said, "Never-Fail" indeed! I used the muffin pan idea but made a crucial mistake - I overfilled the tins. Result - the hot oil was pushed out onto the oven floor where it smoked horribly and finally burst into flames. Got the food out, deployed a fire extinguisher...and continued with dinner! Result: the puddings weren't browned but were fully cooked and DELICIOUS!!! I have to admire a recipe that can catch fire and still get rave reviews from the guests!"
"Excellent! I failed at popovers on a trial run a week before Christmas with a recipe I found somewhere else, and Kittencal suggested I try her recipe. Turned out my oven was just WAY too hot, so I knocked the temp down to 375 and really made sure everything was at room temperature. Delicious. Thank you Kittencal!"
"These are amazing - light and fluffy and they tasted great. I followed the recipe making sure the ingredients were at room temperature. I made these in a 12 cup muffin tin and baked them for 30 minutes. I served this with Kittencal's recipe for Prime Rib recipe #82023. I know this will be the recipe of choice next time I make them. Thanks for posting Kittencal."
"Terrific recipe. I made them in individual muffin cups. Very showy and impressive to bring to the table. My guests loved them."
"Hi Kitz, we made this for a new idea that they are trying to develop here at the home. We are planning on converting an extra dining room into a high-scale restaurant type DR. It is going to be for "special" residents, staff and "outsiders" such as family members and Dr's. Have no idea about the other details, but they should pay a king's ransom for your wonderful Yorkshire Pudding! It was really very good and tasted like I was back in Cuba at one of my mother's dinner parties. Made them just like the recipe said and included beef drippings. Thanks again for the memories and good food, Diane"
"Kitz, made this up to go with my roast tonight for dinner. Now I normally love Yorkshire pudding anyway, but these are far and above most recipe's they are so very nice and fluffy and light. I did use the dripping from my roast to make these, and that adds so much flavor to these. I will be eating the leftover pudding tomarrow for cold. Thank you for this keeper recipe."
