Before this recipe my yorkshires were always like hockey pucks because we're living at a high altitude. I mix up the batter in a blender several hours before dinner and just give it a whir every now and then- Thanks so much!! Read More

I am a little disappointed with this recipe. I always read the reviews before I try a recipe and the reviews rated this one high. I followed the recipe and used the shortening...there was no flavor. I have been making these puddings for years and thought I would try a recipe instead of using 'club house' mix..Don't get me wrong it came out great it just had no flavor. I will try again using oil or lard if this doesn't work I will stick to the package mix. Read More

I think this is a tasty recipe. I have made these a couple times with mixed results. The problem was me not the recipe though. I didn't realize you cannot open the oven door to peek! No matter how much you want to see if your Yorkshire pudding is rising you must never open the door! It causes your pudding to fall. I have made these as a pudding and also in muffin tins as popovers. I enjoyed the popovers more. Read More

This did puff up nicely even in the mile high city. My Father was English and always used bacon drippings. Also added some salt 2tbs salt. Turned out wonderful! Read More

This is very close to how my Mom makes it although she uses just a little bit more shortening (approx. 5 Tbsp.). In my opinion the more 'butter' the better the taste. This was a very simple recipe to make and I enjoyed the outcome. Read More
