A simple pudding full of delightful beef flavor, this recipe pairs perfectly with rib roasts or prime ribs of beef.  Yorkshire Pudding also forms the base for another British classic, “Toad in the Hole”, which adds sausages to the recipe.

Recipe type: Accompaniments
Cuisine: British
Serves: 4
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1 Cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • beef drippings
  1. It is best to mix this well in advance and chill it before cooking.
  2. Beat the eggs and milk together. Sift the flour and salt into the egg mixture and beat until well blended.
  3. Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Pour about 1/4 Cup of beef drippings into and 11- x 7-inch baking pan or muffin tin and heat the drippings until they begin to smoke.
  4. Pour in the batter and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for a further 15 minutes.
This is about enough for four normal people although one taste and few could be called normal.

Opening the oven door during the baking can produce disappointing results so don't.
