I've always wanted to try making
and today was the perfect day to try it!
It's a stormy Saturday and I had an urge to
put a lovely Beef Roast in the
I haven't made a beef roast in a very long time
We are trying not to eat so much meat
and especially red meat!
But, today I splurged and, oh, it smelled so good and
turned out lovely!
The pudding turned out fine too - although I can see
that I need a bit more practice with it!
Someday I hope to travel to England and
have a proper Yorkshire Pudding!
Simple on hand ingredients!
This recipe will make approx. 24 puddings.
Equal amount of milk (not skimmed) - approx. 1 1/4 Cups
Equal amount of flour - approx. 1 1/4 Cups1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
Break eggs into a measuring cup. Measure equal amounts of flour and of milk. Mix flour and salt and pepper. Beat eggs and milk together and then add it to the flour mixture. Mix just until smooth. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Put 1/2 tsp. lard into each mold of two 12 cup muffin tins. Heat the muffin tins and lard in a preheated 375 degree oven for 2-3 minutes or until very hot (not smoking). Remove and quickly pour batter into each hot and greased cup to 1/3 full. Bake immediately for 30 minutes or until puffed and browned. Puddings should be crispy on the outside and soft in the middle - they shrink a bit when they come out of the oven. Serve them warm!
Smothered in gravy - these are a wonderful addition to your
favourite Roast Beef dinner!
Till next time ........ I need to clean up my messy kitchen - I think I am the messiest cook ever!
