Y stands for Yorkshire and Yorkshire Pudding.

When we have our traditional Sunday Roast Beef it is always served with Yorkshire Pudding.


You will see the slice of Yorkshire Pudding nestling on the back of the plate with a good lashing of rich brown beef gravy drizzled over it.


The Yorkshire Pudding is a mixture of at least three large free range eggs , plain flour, milk and water and ground black pepper. I whizz all this together in my food processer then pour it into a hot baking dish which has a good chunk of sizzling hot beef dripping lining it.


 It is then placed in a hot oven for twenty minutes, then another twenty to twenty five minutes on a medium heat.
 



Individual Yorkshire Puddings.

Individual  Yorkshire Puddings are very popular too but I prefer to make one large one and cut it into portions as it has more flavour. I'm pretty certain our dear Denise Nesbitt will agree with me, being a Yorkshire lass, through and through !

Yorkshire is known as 'God's Own County', not without good reason too!
We have had many wonderful holidays in the UK  and amongst our favourite places is The North Yorkshire Moors. 


This is why we love The North Yorkshire Moors.....'God's Own County', indeed! 

Yorkshire also has some lovely seaside towns, another favourite place to visit is Whitby and it's pretty harbour and it's famous fish and chip shops and cafes.

 

 



This is the famous Magpie Café that boasts the finest fish and chips in the UK. I can endorse that, we had a memorable supper there.

Would you believe that we had a traditional first course of  a traditional Yorkshire Pudding, smothered in a scrummy onion gravy?

Fortunately we were allowed a suitable break before the next course arrived! What followed was a feast to behold!

 We were served the most delicious North Sea Cod, coated in a crunchy  golden batter, The cod was succulent and chunky with a fresh flavour of the sea, we were  looking at whilst we ate. The chips were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy inside, just perfect...all washed down with a steaming hot pot of Yorkshire tea...... One of the many reasons why we love YORKSHIRE...

Denise is truly blessed to live in such a wonderful place...She does talk of going for a tootle over the moors to Whitby for fish and chips, I'm not sure where she gets hers from, probably a special place just for locals!

My sincere thanks to the ever Youthful Denise for devising ABCW and the  equally Youthful Roger for keeping us all on our toes !e moors

  1. Hi Diane, someone told me that Lancashire was Gods country , but who am I to argue.. I haven't been to Yorkshire , might of been through it. I cannot believe you had Yorkshire pudding before Fish and Chips .

    I am sure though Yorkshire is a lovely place, you seem to love it♥ xo anne

  2. I do love Yorkshire pudding with roast beef, but I've never tried to make it. It looks complicated even though your recipe seems simple enough. - Margy

  3. Oh yes, - roast beef without yorkshire pudding is like apple pie without cheese (which is like a kiss without the squeeze)

  4. Oh my goodness, you make me positively homesick! I haven't had Yorkshire pudding for ages and then we were served one last week on the cruise ship. They were actually very good! We told our waiter that they should really be served alone before the main course with lots of gravy. We also told him how to pronounce the word 'Yorkshire'. He was Indonesian.
    I love your photos of Whitby. Not far away from where I used to live.

  5. I've been educated on yorkshire pudding today. Thanks. I thought YP is something similar to a meat pie.

    Happy New Year.

  7. Hello Anne,
    Good to hear from you again.
    If you Google 'God's own County', you will find that it is indeed Yorkshire, it tells you about the national parks in the county too!
    We really did have a small taste of Yorkshire pudding and gravy, before our Fish and chips, bearing in mind we were a lot younger and fitter then and had just completed a long bracing walk across the moors and were starving hungry.
    We hope to re visit Whitby some time soon, I must ask Denise where she gets her fish n chips from.
    Love Di xx

    Hi Chris, that is one of the most wonderful things about ABCW that we can talk to people all over the world and often have a common link.
    Now, next time you have roast beef, you must make a Yorkshire pudding but eat it with the dinner not before, lots of good old brown, British gravy to smother it in, along with crisp roasties...Yum Yum xx

    Best wishes,
    Di xx

  15. My sincere thanks to Denise and Roger, but to you as well and all the others who volunteer their time, Trubes. I probably will never taste the Yorkshire pudding you so lovingly describe, but I can appreciate the beauty of that gorgeous countryside for sure. Warmest wishes for you and your loved ones in 2015. (Coming back before the year rings in to visit more blogs.)

  16. Elder Scroblene used to dote on Yorkshire Pudding, made under the joint, and eaten cold with lots of salt.

    Mrs Scroblene is a dab-hand at the delicacy, but as she doesn't eat beef any more, I'm rather stuck for words...

    Happy New Year Trubes, you'e a star down this way!

  22. Wow! Food looks delicious! And do you know we have a state in India called Kerala which has been tagged as 'God's Own Country'?!

  23. Yummmm! My favorite part about a prime rib dinner is the yorkshire pudding. I didn't know it was easy to make. One of the new things I'll make in 2015. Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Amrita,
    Thanks for dropping by and your kind comments, I must find out more about Kerala,
    India is such a vast continent that I'm only familiar with small parts of it.
    I love the Indian cuisine and watch a travel programme about a chef travelling the country and trying out the varied local dishes.
    I seem to remember a dish called Chicken Kerala so will look it up!

    Best Wishes,

  28. Hi Liz,
    You will love the Yorkshire Moors and of course the famous Fish and Chips. I think Denise looks after, or has the information about a holiday cottage where I think Leslie from Canada stayed xx.

  29. Hello Anita,
    If you can, do try to visit the UK, for such a small Island it is brimming with tradition and culture.
    We've given up travelling abroad now and spend our holidays in and around the British Isles and we've had some really wonderful holidays,
    Best wishes for the New Year
