Yorkshire Puddings Fit For Any Dish

Yorkshire Puddings !  a badge of pride to honour our ancestors, it must be one of the most posted food picks ever and just to show they have risen. It is  a right of passage into adulthood, the ability to make a Yorkshire pudding as good as ya ma’s, a monumental moment the same as your first kiss, your first beer, your first everything. The rise of a pudding. Don’t laugh some people do take it that serious.

Well it hasn’t always been that way with a Yorkshire pudding it was saved strictly for Sunday Roasts’s and in particular roast beef. Now it seems its acceptable to have Yorkshire puddings with anything. Is it because our standards are slipping in food etiquette? Or simply people want a more diversified approach to food.

The next burning question is do you make your own or shop bought. I can hear screams across kitchens now “OMG SHOP BOUGHT”  Grandma would be disappointed, but what if they do not rise what would you tell your guest?

This Is the first time they haven’t risen, Honestly!

After all its just flour eggs and milk, oh and the type of fat you cook them in. What could possibly go wrong. Do you add salt and pepper to the mixture. I must confess that my wife makes the better Yorkshire puddings in our house but I do 99% of all the cooking. What always gets me is I have that imagine in my head that the batter has to be of course quite thick so it rise in the oven and stay there.

While 30% of us still make our own every time, 35% happily buy ready-made, and a further 35% will do both, depending on the occasion.

Now surely these have to be good they come from Gordon Ramsey or will his wife Tanya’s be better ?


To make 14–16 smaller Yorkshire puddings, put 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil into each hole of a deep muffin tin (each cup measuring about 7cm diameter x 2.5cm deep), then heat up as described in step 2, before pouring in the batter. Bake the Yorkshires for 12–15 minutes.

Yes times have changed and it is now expectable to have it with any roast meat, a very old school friend had them for breakfast with jam on and he still does today. At the time 30 or so years ago I refused when his mum offered me one (yes I was horrified) but I just might give it a go with jam and see if I can tempt my kids as well. It has to be cheaper than branded cereals.

Professional Yorkshire pudding tray

Got my hands on my new professional Yorkshire pudding tray, happy with the results so far. (see above) I will be adding more mixture to see if I can get the Yorkshires to rise even further.

Yorkshire Puddings With Duck Eggs

Can you make Yorkshire Puddings with duck eggs ? Yes and egg is an egg, with duck eggs in Yorkshire puddings you have to adjust the quantity of flour to egg ratio.  As the duck eggs are so much larger you will need to add extra flour. The ideal consistency of the batter needs to be thick before adding milk. So thick in fact that it becomes difficult to whisk by hand. When adding the milk the batter then needs to be transformed into a light airy batter, when lifting the whisk the batter should be dripping off the whisk just thicker than water.

To be honest my first attempt at making Yorkshire puddings with duck eggs was not perfect. The cooked batter was much more dense. It actually looked the consistency of bread. They still tasted delicious but next time I am going to make the batter even thinner. How have your duck egg Yorkshire puddings turned out. If you have any tips please share them with our readers.

Yorkshire pudding Filling Ideas

Now we have gone a little posh with our Yorkshire puddings it’s time to up the style guide with an array of different fillings.   As mentioned earlier you can fill the puddings with jam.

What Is the Dutch Baby and is it The Same as a Yorkshire Pudding

Now for the uneducated the first time you ever saw a Dutch Baby you would immediately think its a Yorkshire pudding. The recipe is virtually identical except they add some butter to their mixture. However there is another version and this is a sweeter version of the Dutch  Baby as they also add sugar to the mixture.

The arguments are rife and of course the English claim it as their very own Yorkshire pudding copycat recipe pinched by the Americans, The Americans insist its nothing like a Yorkshire pudding as they fill theirs with sweet and savoury fillings. Wait isn’t jam filled puddings sweet? I will stop there and not get dragged into a nation debate on pudding origins.

Twitter Recipes and Yorkshire Puddings

Thee great thing about twitter is that you get to see what people are doing with Yorkshire puddings around the world. One great idea from a good friend from Canada, Captain Kenny and it sounds a delicious idea and I have to try it.

What a great idea for breakfast, sockeye salmon and poached egg. Kenny does have an advantage as he lives near the sea in Canada and his business was all around seafood. He has some great fish recipes and you can find them here on his YouTube Channel
