Happy Yorkshire Pudding Day, you absolute dream! You’re a “reight bobby dazzler” and a right “gud sooart”! #JustSayin’.

Anyway, in keeping with the theme of today‘s blogs, here is another sweet treat to try (not on the same day as the others or else you’ll be on a sugar high).

Traditionally, Yorkshire puddings are the best accompaniments to your Sunday roast and are usually considered savoury. Let’s be honest, Sunday roasts aren’t Sunday roasts without them… No Yorkshires means a Sunday roast is demoted to a Monday roast – which isn’t even a thing! #STANDARD #FACTS.

Anyway, I thought that ‘cos Yorkies are natural sweethearts, I’ll switch it up a bit and share a dessert pudding recipe instead – one that includes Apples and Blackberries (cc: BBC Good Food).

“What ingredients would I need?”

  • 25g butter
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 4 apples (Cox are perferred), peeled, cored and cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 eggs
  • 140g plain flour
  • 200ml full-fat milk
  • 150g blackberries
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil

“How would I go about making it?”

Start by preheating the oven to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9. Then, warm up the butter and 100g of the sugar in a frying pan, chuck in the apples and cook over a high heat for 3-4 mins (until slightly caramelised and starting to soften). Then, set them aside to cool.

In an empty (and clean) bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy, then add rest of the sugar, the two eggs, the flour and the milk, whisking until well combined. Gently begin to and fold the apples and the blackberries into the batter.

Place a 6-hole non-stick Yorkshire pudding tin over a high heat and spray some vegetable oil into each hole.

Spoon a large ladleful of batter into each hole, making sure all fruits are included.

Put the tin in the oven and leave for 15 mins, without opening the door. You’re looking to see if they’ve risen and are a golden tone (before taking them out).

Finally, remove them from oven and carefully place each pudding onto a plate.

Serve immediately with custard, vanilla ice cream, clotted cream etc.
