Nana's Yorkshire Pudding

Recipe by  

"This is my Grandmother's traditional Yorkshire pudding recipe. She's been using it since before I can remember, and they always turn out perfectly! Crispy golden brown on the outside, and a fluffy tender inside. Fill with your favorite gravy, and you have an instant crowd pleaser! Goes great with roasts or with holiday turkeys."

  1. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl; make a deep well in the center of flour mixture. Break eggs into the well and beat until smooth.
  2. Mix milk and water together in a small bowl; slowly stir milk mixture, about 1/4 cup at a time, into flour mixture until batter is a thin, paste-like consistency. Cover bowl and allow batter to stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with butter, using 1/2 teaspoon butter per muffin cup.
  4. Place muffin tin on the second shelf from the top in the preheated oven until butter melts and begins to smoke, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Whisk the batter to fully incorporate all the ingredients, about 2 minutes. Pour batter into the melted butter in each muffin tin, 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until puddings are golden brown and well-risen, keeping the oven door closed the entire time of cooking, 17 to 20 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Yorkshire puddings must be removed from cases immediately to prevent sticking. If kept warm, they could fall (go flat). Consequently, dinner must be timed to be ready when the Yorkshire puddings are done.

I have made a lot of Yorkshire Pudding recipes and although this is different in both the ratio of eggs / milk and I have NEVER added baking soda - these were great. They rise well and hold their shape better than most Yorkshire Pudding recipes do. Thanks for a great recipe.

I am sorry I have never rated a recipe before now, I have made lots of yorkshire puddings before but have to say these were horrid, they tast more like a muffin than what I am use to , which is light and fluffy but to be fair this was the very first thing I have made in my new oven.

These little gems were a hit at my Christmas Eve dinner. I usually bake the traditional Yorkshire Pudding in a pan or the puffy popovers. They were a perfect texture and shape. I mixed them up an hour before baking. While the roast rested, I prepared the pans and put them in the oven. It gave me just enough time to make the gravy. Everything came together perfectly. Please thank Nana for the recipe!

Very good and very easy! My husband's mother always made yorkshire pudding for his b-day. After 22 years of marriage I finally decided to attempt making it. He said it was as good as his mom's. Thanks for the recipe!

I tried this and the puddings did not puff up with the characteristic hollow. Although I did cook with my roast at a lower temperature than suggested. Will use my old recipe next time.

These were so easy to make and held their shape perfectly. I have used this recipe twice and it is replacing my old yorkshire pudding recipe. Thank you for sharing.
