Yorkshire Puddings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 extra-large eggs
  • pan drippings from a roasted roast or veg oil (for preparing  your muffin tin)

Directions:

Turn your oven on to 450 degrees

Take either your pan drippings or vegetable oil and generously brush the inside of your muffin wells as well as the top. By pan drippings I am not talking about the au jus from my roast beef recipe. Pan drippings from a prime roast that has been roasted dry will produce a lot of fat. I prefer to make a roast as a stew because I love au jus for gravy.

Therefore I always use veg oil and you need to leave a couple of mm of veg oil in the bottom of these wells. The big rise these buns get come from the eggs, super hot pan and  hot grease since there is no leavening in the recipe.

It should be well lubed and shiny.

Now you have to throw this empty muffin tin in your preheated 450 degree oven to get the pan nice and hot!

Meanwhile mix your flour and salt together with a quick whisk.

Then whisk  your milk and eggs till frothy.

And ....you guessed it mix the dry ingredients into your wet ingredients, it should sort of look a bit like a very thin béchamel sauce.

Ok now take the extremely hot pan out of the oven and pour your concoction 1/2 to 3/4 of the depth of your muffin wells. Like so....

Now we put the muffin tin back in our oven for about 15min. I like to watch these bad boys expand in the oven :) Come on and lets take a peak and see what is happening.

After only 5 min of oven time:

Ta da!!! They are done and awaiting my gravy and roast beef!!
