Yorkshire Pudding

Yorkshire Pudding is a batter of eggs, milk and flour, baked in the oven. It forms a traditional part of the British Sunday dinner, eaten with roast beef, roast potatoes and vegetables.

In Yorkshire and also, for some strange reason, Suffolk, Yorkshire Pudding may be served with gravy as a starter, before the roast beef and vegetables. It has been suggested that this was in order to fill the diners up before the expensive meat course.

Individual Yorkshire Puddings are becoming more popular, and are commonly available frozen from supermarkets.

Yorkshire Pudding forms a popular element of pub and restaurant menus, where a large round pudding may be used as a bowl to contain fillings such as sausages and onion gravy or roast beef and vegetables.


Although presumably originating from Yorkshire in Northern England, this is now a common dish throughout the country.
