This is the recipe I've been using for thirty two years. The only exception I make is that I will usually use vegetable oil instead of roast drippings: I spray pan with vegetable spray and put 1/2 tsp oil in each cup.
An absolute must to have the oven pre-heated to the right temp before putting the puddings in the oven. I always remove the roast from the oven to set/carve while puddings bake on their own.
This was not the best pudding I've ever tried, I'm not sure why, it just didn't quite taste like the originals.
I have use this same recipe for years. I make it with a 1/2 teaspoon of Criso shortning in each muffin pan hole (makes 9). I also make this in the blender until its light and fluffy. They are more crispy in the muffin tins. If you want 12 then use in high powered blender:
1.5 cups flour
1.5 cups milk
1 tsp salt
Left overs can be reheated in the oven for a few minutes the next day, that is if there are any left :-)
These were fantastic!! We used bacon fat instead of oil and the flavour was outstanding!! My husband says these were as good, if not better, dare I say it!! than his grandmother's!! Yeah!!......
This is the same recipe I've used for years. just a couple of tips -- spray the muffin tins with Pam, and DON'T open the oven.
I love this recipe! I make it to specs, except that I use Crisco instead of beef fat. As a vegetarian, I ate Yorkshire pudding growing up and wasn't willing to let it go. Just preheat the pan (with the Crisco in it) for about 5 minutes before pouring the batter in. It always rises well and comes out puffy and crispy.
Good. For a pancake called Dutch pancakes, use butter, but same batter. When done, serve right away because it collapses. Sprinkle cinnamon, or powdered sugar on it and lemon juice. Or go with syrup. Serve for breakfast. My family loves them. They also like the Yorkshire Pudding with the roast.
Great recipe. However, I prefer the muffin tin.
