How to Cook: Yorkshire Pudding (England)
Yorkshire pudding is a traditional garnish for steak. Popular not only in Yorkshire, but also throughout England, Yorkshire pudding was originally prepared by putting the mixture in the bowl, where the meat has been prepared, and then cooking everything together. Preparing the ingredients in the same pan, after the roast has been removed, captures the entire flavor and allows you to remove a lot of fat. The pudding is often sprinkled with steak sauce.
Ingredients for 6-8 servings:
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
2 cups and a half of milk
Method of preparation
In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, eggs and milk, until the composition becomes soft. Let it cool at least 4 hours or overnight. It is very important for this composition to be very cold.
Preheat the oven to 220ºC. From the pan where the roast was cooked, remove everything but about a quarter cup of fat that has drained. Put the container in the oven until it becomes hot.
Take it out and pour the mixture in the hot pan. Put the pan back in the oven and leave it to baking 20-25 minutes, or until the pudding becomes fluffy and light brown. Serve immediately.
For individual puddings: instead of using a saucepan, put the mixture into mini muffin pan, with 12 cavities and put it in the oven. Leave them to baking for 10-15 minutes.
