Here’s another British classic that has the word “pudding” in it but isn’t really dessert at all. Yorkshire pudding is a baked side dish made from a batter of eggs, milk, and flour, that is usually served with a Sunday roast. Once baked, the batter transforms into a puffed cup that is ideal for dousing with gravy.
If we had to make a comparison, they are similar to what the Americans call popovers. You can even find huge Yorkshire puddings in supermarkets that are stuffed with dishes like bangers and mash or sausages. They are absolutely delightful and once you’ve eaten them, you can’t imagine your Sunday roast without them.
