When were Yorkshire puddings invented?

The first recorded recipe for Yorkshire pudding was published in 1737, though the dish was most likely created sometime earlier. Yorkshire pudding was originally made as a way to make use of the fat drippings from roasted meat, and it wasn’t until later that it became a popular accompaniment to roast beef, a lovely British meal. Today, Yorkshire pudding is typically made with eggs, flour, milk, and salt and is served with gravy or roasted meats.

How much batter to put in the tin for Yorkshire Puddings?

When pouring your batter into the tin, just fill it 3/4 full. If you overfill the tin, the pudding will rise but then collapse because it is too heavy.

The thickness of the batter should be like pouring cream, mixed well and smooth with no lumps.

What’s the best fat to use for Yorkshire Puddings

The best fat to use is either vegetable oil or vegetable lard/fat. Don’t use butter or olive oil as these don’t get to a high temperature without burning!

Are homemade Yorkshire Puddings freezable?

Yes definitely! I’ve done this lots of times, and Yorkshire puddings go great with steamed veg for a lovely vegetarian meal served with onion gravy.

Make a big batch and leave to cool on a wire rack, then place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months! When you need them, just pop them on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven of 200 degrees c for 10 minutes. No need to defrost.
