Cinnamon Roll Yorkshire Puddings

All the flavours of a frosted cinnamon roll in the form of a light and fluffy Yorkshire pudding. You'll be making these ASAP, we promise.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup single cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar

Place a 12-cup muffin tin on the middle rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 200°C.

Add the eggs and granulated sugar to a blender jar and mix on medium speed until light yellow. Add the 1 cup warmed milk and blend. Add the flour, cinnamon, and salt and blend until smooth.

Use a pastry brush to grease the hot muffin tin generously with the melted butter. Add any remaining butter to the batter and pulse to blend. Pour the batter into the warmed muffin tin, filling the muffin cups about three-quarters full. Bake until the Yorkshire puddings are golden, about 20 minutes. (Do NOT open the oven door!) Turn off the oven, keep the oven door closed, and continue to bake the until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the cream cheese with the icing sugar and the remaining 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Remove the popovers from the oven. Use the tip of a paring knife to poke a tiny slit at the top of each Yorkshire pudding (this will allow steam to escape, and will keep them from getting soggy). Brush with the glaze and serve warm.
