My family always gets excited if I am making Yorkshire Pudding. It is, when baked properly, a light pancake-like bread eaten with a meat and gravy type dinner.
My favorite no-fail recipe for Yorkshire Pudding is found in The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas. It is one of many wonderful recipes in this cookbook.
My one helpful hint: I have not had good luck making this dish in a cast iron pan. A thin metal baking dish (square or round) works best. I have made little Yorkshire Puddings in muffin tins, also.
