Reading MAD HUNGRY FAMILY truly hit home for me. It was like standing in the kitchen with my parents learning how to cook. Not only are the recipes amazingly delicious, but the wisdom and lessons in this cookbook are like learning how to cook from your parents or grandparents. I almost heard them speaking Lucinda Scala Quinn’s words to me as I read her cookbook, while making her Yorkshire Pudding.

- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 3 1⁄4 cups whole milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 11⁄2 teaspoons coarse salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 tablespoons pan drippings, reserved from the beef roast (see page 215)
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place foil or a sheet pan below the rack you’re using for the Yorkies to catch any overflow.
- Place the eggs, milk, flour, salt, and pepper in a blender and
- blend on high until the mixture is combined and resembles heavy cream. (This can be done several hours in advance.)
- Pour 1 teaspoon pan drippings into each popover cup (half that amount if using a muffin tin). Heat in the oven for 2 minutes.
- Quickly and carefully pour the batter into the cups, filling each about halfway.
- Put directly in the oven and do not open the door; keep the light on to watch what’s going on in there!
- Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 30 minutes (the Yorkies will puff to the highest height, but not until the last 10 minutes of cooking time).
- Serve immediately.
- This batter will also bake beautifully in one 9-by-13-inch pan. Preheat the oven to 400°F, add a couple of tablespoons of beef fat to the pan, and pour in the batter. Bake as directed above.
