The Yorkshire Pudding is a type of bread that can be served with a variety of foods, but most often is served with the main British dinner on Sunday. The Roast dinner is usually served with these fluffy puddings.

Yorkshire Puddings are quite similar to popovers, but slightly different. The key to a good Yorkshire Pudding would be the fat from meat that is added to the pan of choice when making Yorkshire Pudding. It is the hot grease or fat that makes the Yorkshire batter rise up so well. Many first time attempts at Yorkshire Pudding, leaves the bakers panicked.

The crater that is created when the pudding bakes is meant to be there, yet so many believe their Yorkshire pudding has failed.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            The Yorkshire Pudding is meant to fall?

Yes, there should be a crater when the Yorkshire pudding cooks completely. This is a common condition of the puddings and it is not worth stressing over. There are some recipes that there is no ‘caving’ of the pudding, and that is fine also.

            What is Yorkshire Pudding served with?

Most often the meat of choice is a Roast. These are the popular dish on Sundays in Britain. The grease from the meat is what is added to the pan of choice to make the Yorkshire Puddings in.

            What type of grease is best used for puddings?

I prefer bacon grease or beef lard. Using plain lard will simply make the puddings greasy and not add in any flavor.
