My grandmother used to make it ever so often and since she has passed away , i have not had it...that is until two weeks ago. I'd really like to know if any of you have a recipe for it? I heard there are many ways of making it, and tricks to make it better. please share

2 eggs 1 cup milk 1 cup all pourpose flour 1/2 tsp salt beef drippings (about 1/4 cup)
Beat together eggs and milk. Add flour and salt and beat until smooth. Pour about 1/4 cup beef drippings into a 11 by 7 or 9 by 9 and add batter. bake at 450 for 10 minutes then 350 for 10-15 minutes longer, until puffy and brown.

The above recipe looked about right to me but you must put the fat in the ovan nd let it get smoking hot before you put the batter in otherwise it will be stodge. Then, while in the oven, resist all temptation to keep looking at it. It needs it HOT until it has risen and set.
My Nan always used to serve it at the end of the meal, we were all given a wedge to eat, sitting on her back step, while she washed up. My SIL lives in Yorkshire, UK and they always serve theirs after the roast beef course with onion gravy poured in the middle. While I was pregnant with my last, I really went off meat, but I managed to eat my yorkshires!!lol. :-D
Make them and enjoy.

It's Christmas Day 2001 and our days are merry and bright now that we have a real yorkshire puddin recipe. We are snow bound in a cabin deep in the woods and just cooked the most magnificent, scrumptuous pudding in the wood stove.
