Yorkshire pudding is a traditional British side dish. It’s not what we “westerners” consider a pudding at all, it’s made of flour, milk, and eggs. It’s common with roast beef dinner and tastes delicious with beef gravy.
Growing up, we had Yorkshire puddings with every roast beef dinner and it’s a tradition that I carry with me now that I have a family of my own.
It was always:
1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 6 eggs, salt, and pepper.
It’s a classic and you can’t go wrong with that but I wanted to jazz it up a bit for my partnership with Burnbrae Farms and the Holiday Entertaining Guide that myself and a few other Canadian bloggers put together.
I’ve been buying Burnbrae Farms for years. They’re my go-to for liquid egg whites when it comes to my omelets and meringue treats (like these Christmas Meringues with Eggnog Buttercream Filling).
Burnbrae Farms also has Egg Creations! a carton of liquid eggs that are packed with flavor. All you have to do is pour and savour!
The varieties are really yummy:
- Veggie & Feta
- Mushroom & Spinach
- Garden Vegetable
- Cheese & Chive
In this Yorkshire pudding recipe, I use Cheese & Chive.
Cheesy Yorkshire Puddings
Oh yes! There is nothing better than a classic roast beef dinner with Yorkshire puddings and gravy. This photo is making me hungry, and I’m having some major cravings.
The cheese and chive flavor in the Yorkshire pudding is slight, it’s not overpowering at all. My husband complimented me over and over as he piled second (and third) helpings onto his plate.
That gives it the man approved seal of approval.

Can you make Yorkshire pudding batter ahead of time?
Yes. Growing up that’s how my mom always made it. She would have the batter in a Tupperware juice container and use an immersion blender throughout the day to give it a good mix.
What kind of oil do I need for Yorkshire Pudding?
You want something with a low smoke point. I use canola oil but traditionally you should use fat from the roast beef dinner you’re cooking up. I have also used coconut oil with great results!
Oils with a high smoke point are:
I recommend either canola or avocado oil for Yorkshire puddings.
