Celebrate Yorkshire Pudding Day!

Today is apparently Yorkshire Pudding Day and this got me thinking about the various ways to enjoy this special British dish.

Firstly, know that Yorkshire Pudding is not a dessert (although it’s so versatile that with a few additions, it serves perfectly well as the basis for a sweet treat). Made from a simple batter of eggs, flour and milk, it’s baked in the oven and is the classic accompaniment for roast beef.

You can get a feel for recipes on Pinterest:

Jamie Oliver…I like the tips here from The English Kitchen too:

Yorkshire Puddings are a versatile species so once you get the hang of the basic incarnation, you’ll want to expand your taste horizons. I love Toad in the Hole but have never quite mastered making it, while BBC America has further suggestions for ways to enjoy these tasty morsels.

Last but not least, if you’re a true fan of Yorkies, you’ll want to show your love in other ways. Etsy offers not only Yorkshire Pudding Earrings, but also this adorable new baby card:

    Pauline, I’ve not yet posted Yorkshire Pudding. Thanks for reminding me! I think it’s wonderful when properly done and horrid when it’s not. Was once served some impossible-to-eat hockey-puck-like individual Yorkies by a lovely woman in the Lake District. Nearly broke a tooth!

    Jean, I checked your blog while writing this as I thought I’d find something there. So I agree, this would be a great recipe for you to share.
