English Christmas Dinner Recipe Share / Yorkshire Pudding
The Thanksgiving Recipe Share was fun and I had quite a few of you email to say that the recipes were a success! With that encouragement, we are on to a weekly Christmas Recipe Share! These recipes are for a typical English Christmas dinner. However, for those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, the recipes are great year round and for any occasion!
Enjoy and please share! If you have your own recipe please add it in the comments below. I will post it the following week!
My parents are both British and we grew up with Christmas crackers, trifle, Christmas puddings being lit on fire and a lot of good drinks to go around! Yorkshire pudding is such a standard English recipe and we always make it with a roast. It is so simple and delish with hot gravy poured on top!
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 2 eggs
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cold water
- vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Take a nonstick (preferable) cupcake tin and add a splash of vegetable oil into each compartment (just to cover bottoms)
- Place cupcake tin in oven to get super hot while you make the pudding mixture
- Take a mixing bowl and sift flour into it
- Add eggs
- Take a one cup measuring cup and fill half with cold water and half with milk and add into mixture
- Add a pinch of salt
- Whisk together mixture until you see little bubbles forming on top
- Put aside
- Carefully take out hot tin from oven
- Add a very small dash of very cold water into mix and give it one last whisk
