About this recipe: These are a classic accompaniment to go alongside the traditional English roast. There's no set time for the Yorkshire puddings to cook, but once they look golden, and they've risen a considerable amount, they're done.

This is exactly how I do Yorkshire puds. No weighing, just equal amounts of flour, fluid and eggs by volume. Works every time. - 04 Jan 2012
