Golden, crispy and deliciously moreish, no roast dinner is complete without a comforting Yorkshire pudding, drizzled in gravy. It is pure joy when you pull your homemade Yorkshire puddings out of the oven, feasting your eyes on their golden exterior and knowing the light, buttery flavour that awaits you.
Gill Meller lets us into a secret for creating the perfect Yorkshire pudding: make sure the fat is piping hot before adding the batter, enabling the puddings to rise to their full potential. Gill says: "roast beef wouldn’t be quite the same without a few Yorkshire puddings served alongside it, and this recipe is the one I always turn too. It’s absolutely fool proof. As long as you have a nice hot oven you can’t go wrong. I like to use beef dripping in my Yorkshire tray, it gives them such a good flavour."
