Muffin directions always say "fill 2/3 full".

@Etoile308 - My husband is from Yorkshire and the Yorkshire pudding pan that he, his family and our friends use is identical to the one the OP showed.  (Also, in looking on Amazon, I found some sellers referring to the one pictured as a Yorkshire pudding pan.)

 

We've never seen a Yorkshire pudding pan (for individual Yorkshires) 2 to 2 1/2 inches deep and certainly not smaller in diameter.  I'm not sure how they would come out given those measurements, as the batter needs to rise around the edges and be flat in the middle, to form a bowl.  (Not describing it well, I'm sure.)

 

Yorkshire pudding can be made in a large square or rectangular pan to be sliced into portions, or for some restaurants, a larger individual Yorkshire Pudding can be made.

 

In fact, my husband just made Yorkshire Pudding three nights ago to have with a roast beef dinner.  In the pan my friend brought from England.

I don't know if anyone has posted this info or not but if you go to:

 

kitchensavvy dot com /using-muffin-top-pans

 

there is info that might help.  What I've read there and elsewhere is that one muffin top tin takes about 1/3 of the batter of a regular muffin cup.  Might be worth a read if you haven't already.

@ECBG   In my case, maybe two tablespoons is 2/3 considering how shallow the cups are, will know soon. Smiley Happy

@mousiegirl ...........Try experimenting with your first batch.  Put different amounts in each slot and see which does the best.

Re: DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW MUCH BATTER TO PUT IN THIS MUFFIN TOP PAN?

Been making muffin tops for close to 30 years with pans very similar to this. You've received good advice here -- put in enough batter to where it's 2/3 or maybe even 3/4 full (similar to the same "fill line" when you make full muffins). Which level to fill to might be how you prefer your muffin tops. The kids in my life prefer more rotund muffin tops, so I tend to lean closer to 3/4 full.

 

Watch your bake time! Depending upon how much you fill them and your pan, you might find that bake time varies. Some of my muffin top pans are 10 mins, others are 12 mins, few are longer than that. I usually stop at 10 mins and check them, then bake them for 2 add'l minutes at a time.

 

Our OG favorite muffin top pan has straighter sides inside the circles. It somehow makes a better, almost more realistic muffin tops -- as if you've pulled the top right off the muffin. The pans that slant inward inside the circles almost come out a little more like whoopie pies.

 

Good luck & enjoy!
