You may have heard of the Yorkshire Ripper, the movie the Full Monty or the candy Yorkshire Mixture. What we like to be famous for is the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire pudding. Oh yeah and Sir Titus Salt. This was a man who built a mill way back when then built houses and a church for all his workers. How cool is that? The area became historical a few years ago meaning that the government dictated what you could do to your house. People who had the houses in Saltaire became rich overnight. Nice!
If there’s a recipe you’ve always wondered about or would like to make, let me know!
7/8 CUP PLAIN FLOUR
QUARTER TEASPOON SALT
1 CUP MILK
4 TBS OIL
1. Turn the oven on to 425 F
2. Melt oil in a shallow tin or a few small cupcake tins. Place in oven till the oil starts to bubble a little and/or if you pour the batter in there it sizzles. This is the trick – to make sure the oil is really hot before adding batter.
3. Mix all the ingredients together and pour all the batter into the tins you have chosen
4. Bake for about 20 – 30 minutes depending on size of puddings
5. The puddings will have a small hollow in the top into which you pour a filling of onion gravy. These can be served alone or with roast beef/lamb. They can also be frozen until later then just re-heated in the oven on low. I like to do this – the burning oil sometimes makes your kitchen smell!
