British Yorkshire Pudding Day!!

Did you know that the 1st Sunday of February is designated British Yorkshire Pudding Day!!

The Yorkshire pudding was usually made in a large tin, rather than the individual puddings that we are familiar with today. Often it was served before the main meal - which helped to fill hungry mouths so less meat needed to be served - particularly during hard times!  

The traditional way of eating these delightful delicacies is with roast beef but we eat them with any big dinner! Pork, chicken, turkey or even sausages. I remember as a child after Sunday dinner my dad would make a batch and we would have them with jam & squirty cream on....Mmmm Lovely!

It really is important to get your Yorkshire pudding recipe right so it can be a matter of trial and error and I think your oven also has a lot to do with it!

I think it's the best national day so far of the year so far!!
