Yorkshire Pudding of the United Kingdom

Recipe from Aunt Debbie

Yorkshire Pudding, also known as batter or dripping pudding, is a dish named after Yorkshire, England, although there is no evidence it originated from there. When wheat flour became more common for making cakes and puddings, cooks in the north of England devised a means of making use of the fat that dropped into the dripping pan to cook a batter pudding while the meat roasted in the oven. A recipe for ‘A dripping pudding’ was first published in 1737 in The Whole Duty of a Woman. Similar instructions were published 10 years later in The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy by Hannah Glasse under the title of ‘Yorkshire pudding’. It was she who re-invented and renamed the original version. A 2008 ruling by the Royal Society of Chemistry has it that “A Yorkshire pudding isn’t a Yorkshire pudding if it is less than four inches tall.”


1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
¼ cup of roast drippings (or melted butter)


Sift together the flour and salt in a large bowl. Form a well in the center. Add the milk and melted butter and beat until fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until the batter is completely smooth and large bubbles rise to the surface. Use immediately or let sit for up to an hour.

Heat oven to 425°F. Add roast drippings to a 9×12-inch pyrex or ceramic casserole dish, coating the bottom of the dish. Heat the dish in the oven for 10 minutes.

(For a popover version you can use a popover pan or a muffin pan, putting at least a teaspoon of drippings in the bottom of each well, and place in oven for just a couple minutes.)

Carefully pour the batter into the pan (or the wells of muffin/popover pans, filling just 1/3 full), once the pan is hot. Cook for 15 minutes at 425°F, then reduce the heat to 350°F and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, until puffy and golden brown.

Cut into squares and serve at once.  Serves 6.
