Occasionally as a boy , my Dad would harp on about the drop puddings my grandmother used to make sadly she died when I was Young ..it isn’t a conventional Yorkie served with a pudding mix but s subtlety different mixture ....my dad always had it with milk often with a Bramley apple filling the bramley local to where he lived in Southwell notts..where I am Dewsbury we have the rhubarb triangle on the doorstep. Ultimately choose any fruit you fancy, it could be jazzed up with cinnamon and cream The yorkie I have done in a remoska but I find works best the boots heated by gas for a normal oven treat as you normally would https://www.yorkshirepudd.co.uk/yorkshire-recipe/?fbclid=IwAR0xvO9N3n58XnDWZyNv4JtMe-Gl4OXo8qD8CqM9oPal8Iyt4tjXW3OvABo

As a kid Andrew, my mum would make the Sunday roast with Yorkshire puddings of course. Often we would have Yorkshire puds for dessert as well. Served with a nice dollop of Strawberry jam, they have a sort of doughnutty taste, which is not surprising really. I've not tried this for ages, so I might get Julie to rustle me some up this weekend.

Your mum a traditionalist, a lot of the old folk still do it that way, they were originally a starter and filler when folk had little money for meat. . I note with interesT on the website I quoted above a Yorkshire company is selling tins in the states and they are doing a storm ...they are delicious imho as a starter served with a red wine and red onion gravy,,,,food of the gods

Mix in the sugar, salt and milk and beat to the consistency of cream. Let it stand for about half an hour or so and stir occasionally to let the air in. Butter an ovenproof dish and pour in the Yorkshire Pudding batter mixture. ‘Drop’ in the fruit into...

My old man used to do most of the cooking in our house when I was a kid. Occasionally he would stir in a handfull of sultanas into the mix. Brilliant.........can still taste it now.
