Yorkshire Pudding, a.k.a. popovers are so delicious! Serve as part of a main meal with lots of gravy, or as an appetizer and fill them with goodies. You can also serve these as a dessert, adding some nice fruits or pie filling and ice cream! You decide. They are so yummy! Make in one pan or mini muffins.
Yorkshire Pudding is traditionally served as a side dish in a Roast Dinner, for example, Roast Beef.
In the US, many call this (when made in a muffin pan) popovers, and some will often dust with powdered sugar and eat as a dessert.
However, if you have ever been to Yorkshire in the UK, you would often have this dish with your roast meat, or sausages (called Toad in The Hole), together with Roasted Potatoes, veggies and then topped with onion gravy. It really is quite a meal, very delicious often a real family favorite.

1. Set oven to 425 F, Gas 7, 220 C. THE OVEN MUST HAVE REACHED THIS TEMPERATURE BEFORE YOU PUT THE DISH WITH BUTTER IN.
2. Melt butter in 9 x 13 oven proof pan, making sure the butter is turning brown from the heat in the oven. THE BUTTER MUST BE REALLY HOT
3. Mix wet ingredients, then add the other ingredients mixing until smooth. USE AN ELECTRIC HAND MIXER TO GET AS MUCH AIR IN AS POSSIBLE
4. Pour over melted butter and close the oven door immediately.

This mix will also make 12 muffins, follow the same instructions, and cook for 17 - 20 minutes.
This is the Yorkshire pudding I made in a large dish and I simply sliced it in to portions for serving. It was huge! WOWZAAA
One of our Supporters, Patty has offered some advice regarding temperature and altitude issues :
To avoid a dense pudding, or not rising, it could very well be due to altitude levels and temp issues... if you have an older range/oven your temp may very well not be reaching the 425* mark even though the oven is telling you it is. You could try raising your temp to 430* or even 450* just keep a watchful eye on it.
In my case I have a brand new range and mine is gas and reaches a bit hotter temp than set at so I have to lower mine to 400* rather than the 425* and sometimes with altitude difference you may need to adjust the recipe which I did and used only 1 1/3 C flour which lightened it considerably less.
