    Funny you brought this up...

    Mark Bittman had an article and video "The Beefless Yorkshire Pudding" on just this subject, yesterday in the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/23/di...3mini.html?hpw
    Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

    I'm from across the Pennines from Yorkshire but have been told that traditionally Yorkshire pudding was their version of Cornbread, and would be used as both a savoury and a sweet item if there was little else in the cupboard there might be some flour an egg and grease. Lard, or Beef Dripping was traditional (throughout Northern England at leaast) for frying all food in.

    BTW, try making it in a shallw pan instead of individually, now it looks like a super fat pancake dark/golden brown, when it's still warm slather it with some good Blackberry Jam/Jelly...


    I think the linking of it to Roast Beef became fashionable much later.

    Yes and use plain flour and let the mixture rest for at least half hour to let all the bubbles rise out of it, and don't use any bicarb they will only taste fizzy.

    I must say though the ones that spotts has there look very good indeed. It's pointless asking plainjs but has anyone tried toad in the hole?

    I once had scouse at my mates granmars house, she lived in Ormskirk. It was just like stew, but I enjoyed it any way.

    What does BTW mean, was you born after 1982 or something?

    Its been called West Yorkshire since the mid to late sixties I think. I was born in 65 and my birth certificate says county of York, my sister was born in 69 and hers says county of West Yorkshire.

    West Riding is a region newly created to include parts of north, south, and west Yorkshire I think. Its just another vote rigging ploy, along with all the other five counties in Yorkshire. I don't think many people do know what the West Riding is, apart from a sector for health care.

    I know Historically Yorkshire was split into 3 semi autonomous divisions of North, East and West "Ridings", York City was not part any of them, sort of like DC I suppose. I believe this was because Yorkshire nobles had evolved from a mostly Viking influence rather than Anglo Saxon.
    The new "West Yorkshire" is not the same as the old West Riding, (which sounded cool I thought, I used to imagine Fox Hunting through the Dales when I heard it on weather report or whatever).
    They messed around with all the old boundaries and invented new ones . Teeside for example rather than Middlesbro and Stocton on Tees, Darlinton having seperate political lives as well as cultural. They did the same to Liverpool. F*** knows what they call it these days, first it was Merseyside now it's Metropoliton Sefton or summat!

    BTW, would not have thought there'd be much call for Air conditioning in your neck iof the woods! Heating for sure, but other than that it must be all Commercial or Industrial, no?

    Yes your right air con is in its infancy in the UK as a whole, mainly industrial and commercial. Only well to do and some conservatories have air con. In yorkshire we just wear sheepskin coats to keep warm, and it makes it easier when your sneaking up behind the sheep. LOL

    Makes sense, the toffs probably want it for dehumidification purposes I would think, keep their prized sheepskins in top nick!

    Don't really need it here, at least not close to Ocean, we have a couple of weeks where the on shore breeze reverses and we get a wind coming off the desert to the east of here. it's like 10 pc humidity and 90 F!!!

    I just sleep downstairs on those occassions, downstairs won't get above 70/72F, a couple miles inland and you NEED A/C.

    Okay I made yorkshire pudding this weekend.

    I didn't have large muffin tins so I used custard dishes. Also found a recipe that used bacon drippings instead of beef drippings. They kind of looked like the ones in Spotts picture. I might have baked them a tad more.

    The recipe I had said not to open the oven. While I had to open it or else my "bloody" roast would have burned. But I think I was successful.

    The mistake I made was having potatoes with the meal. Too much starach. The pudding should be a subsitute for potatoes.

    cheers and all the rot.
