One of the many things the British are famous for, Yorkshire Pudding is a dish that was more first considered as peasant’s staple diet. However, nowadays it has become an integral part of the Sunday Roast in England.
Yorkshire Pudding is a dish that is made from a batter and usually served with gravy and roast beef. The dough is prepared from eggs, flour, milk, butter and seasoning.
The history of this dish dates back to the early 1700s when numerous recipes for a meal called Dripping Pudding got published in multiple magazines for women. Back then, the Yorkshire Puddings were more significant and flatter than the ones we see today. That because the people used to make this dish in the ranges and not in the fan-assisted electric ovens that are in use contemporarily. Nowadays, people make their Yorkshire Puddings in the batches that used to make small muffins. These puddings are called Mini Yorkshire Puddings.
