Some Like It Hot

There seem to be a lot of celebrating Marilyn Monroe right now. There's the movie My Week With Marilyn with Michelle Williams, the TV show Smash with Debra Messing, and didn't Mariah Carey name her daughter Monroe too?

I am sure there's more, but that's all I can think of right now. And honestly, that's plenty. 

Marilyn Monroe was talented, beautiful, and a real woman, but if you think that this post is going to be all about Marilyn you would be wrong. And if you think it's going to be about Dom Perignon, steak, or caviar, again, you would be wrong. 

But, if you think it's about a recipe that needs to stay hot in order to be as successful as Marilyn, you would be right. 

The Yorkshire Pudding and a hot oven go together like Marilyn and Happy Birthday, Mr President. So get your baking shoes on and let's get going. 

Simple Yorkshire Pudding

1 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 pinch of salt
3 eggs, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Whisk all ingredients together until mixture is frothy. Let mixture rest for 10 minutes.

3. Fill a muffin tin with a half centimetre of oil (or liquid fat from a roast beef pan) in each section and preheat it in the oven for a few minutes.

4. Remove muffin from the oven and divide mixture into the 12 sections with a small ladle.

5. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the puddings are crisp and puffy. Enjoy!

Just remember Marilyn when you're making these, because Yorkshire Puddings like it hot and the only thing you could do wrong when making them is to open the oven door. It would just deflate their poor little egos.
