Yorkshire Pudding is a traditional English accompaniment to a roast dinner. Some people serve the Yorkshire Pudding before the main meal, with gravy, as a starter. Though this more traditional way of serving is getting less common as people serve the Yorkshire Pudding more often together with the rest of the meal.
- Stir together flour and salt and milk.
- Mix in eggs, beat until batter is bubbly.

- Heat fat or oil in 9 x 9 inch baking dish in oven for 15 minutes, or for individual puddings heat the oil in a bun or muffin tin.
- When oil is very hot pour in batter.
- Bake at 450°F until puffed and brown, about ½ hour.
- Serve with roast and gravy.
Lots of people have their own little tips and tricks for making a perfect Yorkshire Pudding.
- The most important of these is to make sure cold batter is added to very hot fat before putting in oven and not opening the oven door for the first 20 minutes.
- Adding a splash of cold water to the batter just before placing in the baking dish (or roasting tin/bun tin) is one way to ensure your batter is cold.
- Another tip is to add a very small splash of vinegar to the batter.
- Another method is to make the batter first thing in the morning and beat it every hour until you use it to ensure lots of air is added.
- Adding an extra egg to the recipe is another way to ensure your puddings rise.
