Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding
The secret to making foolproof Yorkshire pudding is to add the batter to sizzling hot fat. That way, the puddings puff up and get crispy on the outside, but stay perfectly tender inside.

This recipe was definitely quick and easy. The only thing my boyfriend and I found wrong with the finished product was the very dominant taste of egg. Other than that, a great recipe.
This recipe is fantastic!! I do not like eggs and these puddings are not eggy at all (imo). They are light and fluffy and did not fall when taken out of the oven. I have tried dozens of recipes in the past 2 years and this one is by far the best.
This recipe is quick and easy, but has the wrong temp. You have to have the oven HOT for the first 5 to 10 minutes to get the Yorkshire to pop, then lower it. Will try again using a higher temp.
I'm so happy with this recipe. When I lived in England I could make perfect yourkshire puddings. Due to the altitude change in Canada I've had no success in 8 years, trying countless variations of yorkshire pud recipies, until I tried this one. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it makes perfect yorkshires.
Want nice golden brown and fluffy Yorkshire puddings? Did you find that this recipe left you with deflated puddings? The fix is simple... DO NOT DROP THE TEMP FROM 375!!! Leave the temp at 375 and pull them out when they are nice and golden brown. Not only will they be puffier, they will have an exterior which holds it's shape.
After having tried many yorkshire pudding receipes, this one was not only the easiest, but the best tasting. My family raved, this one's a keeper!!
Very good recipe. Something that should be considered is to let your eggs come to room temperature before making. When cooking the yorkshire will rise and puff higher.
Amazingly yummy! My dad says they are just as good or better than his moms :) Because of a dairy allergy I use rice milk in these and you can't tell at all. These have a place in my permanent cookbook, and I will be giving my own kids this recipe when they move out!
I tried this recipe with all my fingers crossed as I was serving them to 3 critical Brits, it turned out wonderfully, they all said they were fantastic! The only thing I changed at the suggestion of one of my guests was to increase the oven temp so I did them at 425 which was perfect! This is my go to for Yorkies now!
Excellent! Better than any of my English family's recipes.
Thanks for giving me this easy recipe...helped me out when I was desperately trying to find a recipe for yorkshire pudding
I was recently at a social where I met the chef from one of Canada's top restaurants. He suggested for the best Yorkshire pudding, fill each cup half way with a 50/50 mix of clarified butter (Ghee) and vegetable oil. The result was out of this world.
These turned out wonderfully for our Christmas dinner today. Thank you! I have read some of the negative reviews and can only assume those people have not tried yorkshire pudding before - they are supposed to be golden and crispy on the outside and somewhat moist and eggy on the inside, with an empty space in the centre to pour in the gravy. So yorkshire pudding newbies, consider yourself warned -- yorkshire puddings taste eggy!
Nice basic recipe, but they are quite heavy. I live in northern British Columbia, Canada.
Did not change a thing on this recipe and they came out perfect. The key is to get them out when they are still relatively standing tall, otherwise expect them to drop back into the tin. This was quick and easy and everyone enjoyed them.
To make this taste like traditional English yorkshire pudding you need to add about 1/2 tsp of salt. Other than that, this recipe is spot on.
Simple and tasty - I added a small amount of the pan drippings to the bottom of each cup before I added the batter... they turned out yummy
I love this recipe. It was quick and easy. I have never had such fluffy yorkshires before.
My husband is English. I have never attempted Yorkshire puds out of sheer fear that they would not even come close to those made by my darling mother-in-law. Well, hello Yorkshires! So fluffy, so gorgeous, I thought my husband was going to cry when he saw them, and pass out when he ate one. He ate one straight from the tin, couldn't wait for me to make the gravy. One thing I did learn from her is that you don't ever open the oven until they're timed to be done, so perhaps that will help those having trouble. Anyway, this recipe should be bronzed for prosperity. Thank you!!
This was really good. Not too eggy and the tip about cooking it at 450 for 10 min first was good. They puffed up perfectly. Absolutely the best
incredibly easy and delicious! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. My boyfriend goes absolutely crazy for it!
Excelllent. I have been searching for this type of a receipt for 30 years an I finally found it.
Not only the best yorkshire pudding I have ever made, but I made them for a friend from the UK who said they were the best he'd ever had. Every time I make them for company they get rave reviews. A definite winner!
These were great and simple to make. We had these with Roast beef and gravy (from the crockpot). Delicious!
Never considered making Yorkshire Pudding! This recipe has changed me! It really is "quick and easy"! I will always make these with prime rib from now on!!
The title says it all! Quick & Easy! So buttery and delicious. The only thing was it did take more then 25 minutes to cook. Maybe it was my oven but it took closer to 40-45 minutes. Kept a close eye on it since it was my first time making it. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Definitely a keeper!
Really good just as it is. Even better when you replaced the butter with roast pan drippings!
This was great and VERY easy to make. Thanks!
AMAZING! Super easy, super delicious! Just followed the recipe as written and turned out perfect! Best and easiest yorkshire recipe I have tried. Will be making this again and again!
I thought this was terrible. They didnt rise at all and it was too egg and salty tasting.
These were ok, the longer cooked ones were better. Just didn't wow me like some others have.
I have made this soooo many times and it turns out perfectly always!
I made it exactly as directed and they turned out amazing. I had to cook them about four extra minutes to get them nicely browned. So easy my kids are making them on Christmas! (13 & 15 years old)
These were very quick and easy to make and tasted great! I made mini yorkshire puddings and everyone loved them! Definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing!
Turned out great. Wish it would have come out of the muffin pans easier, though.
Great, simple recipe. I put half in the oven following the directions, lowering the temp after 5 min. Then later with the other half of the batter I left the temp at 375 the whole time. Both batches were good, but they cooked up better left at the higher temp. I liked the little bit of brown crispness on the edges. Also the 2nd batch, I didn't add butter but sprayed with Pam. That worked fine, too, just be sure to spray generously. I sprinkled in a little salt. Update 11/26/15 - made these again without salt, next time I will go back to adding a small amount of salt.
this is a great recipe for yorkshire pudding. They are light and fluffy which is important. I will use this recipe for any future roast beef diners.
I honestly searched a yorkshire recipe to match my late mother in laws for a good 20 years!!! My husband loves these!! Its a perfect treat to every major meal, turkey, roasts. anything!!!
Never having tasted yorkhire pudding, I have to say this tastes like egg. Maybe I will play around with it once more and add some beef broth instead of milk or substitute half milk, half broth to give it a better flavor. Thank you for sharing this.
Very much like the "German Pancakes II" on this site, but smaller. They are very easy to make and come out light & fluffy. I made 1/2 recipe with 1 egg, 1/2 C milk and 1/2 C flour. My daughter makes this frequently and says you can make them sweet or savory. She uses beef drippings instead of butter and puts some finely chopped onion in the batter. I prefer the sweet ones and sprinkle them with a little lemon juice and then some powdered sugar. I guess there are a lot of possibilities with this recipe.
loved it! I've heard of Yorkshire pudding before but never really knew quite what it was. This recipe is so easy and I can envision so many uses for it. Two (or so) of these in the bottom of a bowl of chili, or with any kind stew, etc. I've added a pinch of salt and a dollop of maple syrup to each muffin tin and they were delicious with breakfast! this is a good, easy and versatile recipe...thanks for sharing!!
I've never had yorkshire pudding before, and this was my first attempt at making them. I used one less egg than the recipe says and they turned out great! They puffed up great and I thought they tasted like fried scones so I dusted them with powedered sugar and ate them with honey butter. YUM :)
Exactly what I was looking for. One note: I always dribble some drippings in the muffin cup and heat those to sizzling befor I ladle the batter in. They come out beautifully every time.
This is the first time I have ever made this recipe and it turned out perfectly, (cooking time in my oven was shorter). If you wind up with leftovers, re-heat them the next day and add a little butter, a sprinkle cinnamon and drizzle with maple syrup, delicious!
quick and easy yes, but not the best yorkshire I've ever made. not bad either, just not the best.
I substitute the flour with "all purpose Gluten free flour" and milk with "rice milk"! Loved the result although it didn't turn as fluffy as the original recipe :)
Hello... I am not exactly from the UK but I made these at home and I think these were amazing in every essence! They turned out very fluffy and didn't taste too eggy at all. My only issue with these was the fact that there was tidbits of black burnt food at the bottom of our oven and they started glowing halfway through the preheating process so I had to wait for quite some time to remove all the tidbits of burnt food (which was not easy). These were wonderful to make and eat and I have yet to see if my family agrees. It is simply something I can make anytime I feel like; they are extremely easy to make. I thank you for posting this recipe on this website.
My family loved the taste of these yorkshire puddings and they were definitely easy.....except the clean-up...
These turned out wonderful! I followed the exact recipe and didn't have any problems with rising or browning. I didn't notice them tasting too egg-y either. All of our guests loved the authentic touch added to our Christmas prime rib dinner. Will make again next year!
Maybe it's because I have never had yorkshire pudding before and I did not know what to expect, but I did not care for it. I'm sure this recipe was perfect for what I was making, but I guess I just do not like yorkshire pudding. I only made it for my daughter's school project, but because it was so fluffy and beautiful in presentation I tried it. The teacher said they were wonderful, but I thought different. I read on here that they were not eggy at all. Ha - I thought they tasted just like fluffy egg with no seasoning. Very eggy to me and I love egg. I will make this again I'm sure when my other two daughters have to make it for school, but not as a dish for our eating.
Make sure you have MUFFIN TINS for this one.. i was tooo eager .. lol.... I made them after goin to walmart, and they are the tastiest! Way easier than what i was told.
It was not good!
I'd never had Yorkshire pudding before, and this was a very simple recipe for a first-time effort. It surprised me how much it tasted like the pastry part of a cream puff. I thought they were just fine, but my husband went crazy for them. I would suggest spraying the muffin tins with non-stick spray before adding the butter.
easiest, fluffiest, tastiest yorkshires ever! My husband is english and poo poo'ed me when I attempted these, trying to correct me at every step- yorkshire duty in our house has now been turned over to me! these are fantastic!
I only got 9 yorkshire puddings out of this recipe because we like them a little bigger. They turned out perfectly and were quick and easy to make. Will definitely make them again.
Just made this recipe last night & they were a thing of beauty!! I, 1 nd 1/2ed this recipe. I didn't have enough oven space for my roast potatoes and broccoli casserole so it ended up, my 6 muffin pan yorkshires were ready when it said, but the other 12 flopped as soon as they came out of the oven, as they weren't quite done yet. I thought to myself, oh well, let's see what will happen if I put them back in...and they rose again and cooked to a puffy perfection! AMAZING! Normally you can't open the oven or anything with yorkshires...LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Thank you for making my Mum's 77th Birthday dinner perfect! Everyone was raving! xoxo
These were good. Next time I will bake them a few minutes more.
I make yorkshire pudding every time I make a beef roast. I have tried many different recipies with varying results. This recipie was simple yet turned out to be the best one yet. Everyone at my Christmas dinner raved about them and there were no leftovers. I did use 4 Tablespoons of crisco mixed with 1 teaspoon of powdered brown gravy mix. Next time I think I will try saving some bacon fat just for another layer of flavor and I will up the gravy mix to 1 tablespoon.
The greatest I've ever tried and easy!!!! Everyone loved them at the Christmas table, they were nice and light with no fuss to make. I don't usually try new recipes on special occasions but I'm glad I did.
Best, best, best, best, BEST!!!! I have failed too many times while trying to make Yorkshire Pudding for my English husband and stepson. They are very gracious and tell me the Yorkshire pudding taste is good, or some such passable compliment. BUT... this recipe works!! Next time I will add 1/2 tsp salt to the batter. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
This is good in a pinch but too "airy" for me. I like my yorkshire pudding a little more dense.
Delish & loved by all! :) I made one giant Yorkshire in a round baking pan to get that nice spongy bit in the middle surrounded by a crispy outer edge. I added 1.5tbsp oil to the pan, and put it into the oven for about 5 minutes. Then I took the pan out, poured the Yorkshire mix in, kept it at 375F and let it bake for about 35min. (I checked on it after 25 min, then let it continue to bake in the oven for another 10 until the outer edge was nice and golden.)
So good and so simple! I think next time I'll add a touch of salt, if the accompanying gravy isn't laced with it.
Awesome recipe for a good, simple Yorkshire Pudding! I used a little oil in the muffin tins instead of the butter. Turned out amazing!
Being a yorkshire girl I should have been making these since birth but this was actually my first attempt and although they weren't as good as my mum's they weren't far off. Extremely easy to make and olive oil also works as a substitue for butter when I realised I didn't have any!
This was super good for my first time making it. I am trying to bring in more home made food in my house because all the frozen food is now gross
I thought the recipe was very easy and turned out the way I remember my mom making them! Good trick is to make sure everything is a room temp and leave on counter to rest for half hour or so to give everything a chance to rest... FANTASTIC RECIPE!
This recipe is very easy and the results are fantastic. I made this for my family and they were very impressed. I made sure all my ingredients were room temperature before I started, and I had no problems. The flavour was perfect as well.
Absolutely amazing! Very simple and tastes amazing. I wouldn't change a thing and definitely a staple from now on with our roasts
it tasted a lot like eggs. My english boys said they were tasty but not a whole lot like Yorshire Puds. Never mind...
they were good but a little bland. even with gravy something was missing. so in one batch i made them with oil and a little bit of garlic in the muffin tin instead of butter and those were great.
EZ fast and good. I used traditional yorkshire pudding pans from the UK and this recipe made 8.
Lovely, light, fluffy, perfect individual Yorkshires. Yummers!!
Easy and yummy. Followed recipe exactly.
I followed the advice in some of the comments (which echoes other recipes I've seen) and had the oven as hot as possible for the first 10 minutes. I also added some salt. They turned out very well!
easy and delicious!
This was a great easy receipt for a first timer. I have always been afraid to make this as I thought it was much more difficult than it is.
Excellent recipe. I use cooking oil instead of butter, but it turns out perfect every time. Thanks for this!
My boyfriend has been saying for a month that he really wanted a roast beef dinner with yorkshire pudding. Last night I surprised him with these and he was thrilled. They were so easy to make and turned out great!!
Perfect just like my Scottish mother use to make, but she did do as a reviewer said instead of butter added the beef fat rendering to bottom of pan, oh yea she made it in a 9x13 pan also, not muffins, not as presentible but just as tasty, for 12 kids eating who cared..lol Great recipe
Made these tonight with roast been and gravy. These were excellent. I think one of the better tasting yorkshire pudding I have eaten. Someone said these were heavy...we didn't find these heavy at all. In fact thought they were light and delightful. Will sure make these again next time I make roast. thanks for the recipe!!!
Soooooo goood and soooo easy....made with prime rib and they were awesome , added some salt and pepper and they were perfect.
I found these easier to do than I thought. I served them at a family diner and they were a welcome substitute to buns. Good recipe!
Easy and delicious, good recipe. I find the trick to good Yorkshires is that the batter needs to be at room temperature. Since I don't plan far enough ahead, I nuke the milk for 30-40 seconds before adding it to the other ingredients. This takes the chill off and makes it rise much better.
Best ever and the butter gives a delicious aroma to go along with the taste.
always been afraid to make Yorkshire Pudding. Not this way, they were wonderful. Family gobbled them up, super easy to make. **have a friend in UK she said to add 2 tsp. of stuffing mix to this recipe. LOL her hubby a chef and argued that only 1 tsp was necessary. I went with Carol and it was a nice addition. Try it out... quite nice addition
Beyond simple and delicious! Love it love it love it. I was always told making yorkshire puddings is impossible and a giant time suck, but this definitely proved those people wrong!
This recipe is really easy i suggest you try it!
So easy!! So good!!
my mom has made yorkshire pudding since I can remember and when I made it it never turned out like my moms did until I found this recipe OMG this is a great yorkshire recipe I love it and my mom loves it this is a no fail recipe guys I do add a pinch of salt and some white pepper to this recipe it is all about what you like you can't mess this up unless you burn the butter then please start over because it will taste nasty I have made this so many times and I always have to make a double batch it is a little eggy but with homemade gravy from the dripping for the prime rib makes it please give this recipe a try it is also good with roast beef to
Perfect! I did add a pinch of salt. Easy and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
I needed to make 150 of these for a Christmas party. They all turned out perfect. Well, I thought they were perfect. I had never made, nor eaten a yorkshire pudding before this, so I'm not sure how they compare to anything else. But they were fluffy, crispy, and "custardy" all at the same time. Yum! I used the drippings from a roast instead of butter for half of them. The other half I mixed beef bouillon and vegetable oil (1/4 tsp. bouillon to every 2T oil)and used that instead. Both ways worked great. I will definitely make these again!
Loved this recipe. I pre-heat the milk before mixing in the eggs and flour and it turns out even more puffy. I have tried for years to make yorkshire pudding but now found a successful recipe - thankyou
I questioned whether a recipe this easy could make the yorkshire pudding like I remember from my childhood. My fears were unfounded, these are AMAZING! They puffed right up, and taste awesome. I highly recommend these!
I had never herd of yorkshire pudding before, I came a crossed this recipe.. It was soo EASY TO MAKE! but they are VERY BLAND.. NOT VERY GOOD..
SOO, I'm British. Very English, & me wonderful man asks politely " Please make Yorkshire Pudding this year for Christmas with your amazing Prime Rib" . I answered " Of course dear. With pleasure" . Little did he know I had NEVER made them before. Not every Brit goes about making Yorkshire Poo. But do I tell him this? NEVER! I'm too bloody frightened, to think straight, but those muffin tins came out, & I got to work, shaking with dread. IT WORKED! THIS RECIPE WORKED! watching them puff up , was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I told me sweety bear , " Come here. Watch this! " we watched in amazement, & they came out Perfect! AHHS & Smacking of lips was involved, & it was simple! Use this recipe. Follow it. Call your mates over, to watch the splender of it all, & after I told Me Sweety bear that it was the very 1st time I had made them. he was impressed. Needless to say, he ate them, guests ate them. Guess who didn't get even a taste. ME! Now I have to remake them. No problem. Now as a proud Brit, I can say " Bloody "ELL YES. I MAKE ROASTS & YORKSHIRE POODINGS. Cheers & Happy 2018, all you foodies.
Tried a few recipes out so far and was about to just stick with the one I was not really happy with (or the package) UNTIL I decided to try one more - THIS ONE! I'll be sticking with this one for sure! No more looking around for me, thanks!!
This came out beautifully! By far the best recipe for popovers that I have tried ("real" Yorkshire pudding would use the beef fat from the roast you were making just ahead of the Yorkshire pudding, not butter), but I am giving this 4 stars instead of five because you need to add some salt. I generally use unsalted butter so I have the ability to control the level of salt in a recipe, so I would add at least 1/4 tsp. of salt to the batter next time and work my way up if that is not enough. Also, I agree with another reviewer that it helps to have the eggs at room temperature. Thanks for a great recipe!
