I seem to recall that tradional Yorkshire puddings should be baked flat - in a tin- and served after the main course, sometimes with jam. Am I correct ?


Cheers.

No Yorkshireman, but that seems an odd way to consume them, to me. Do they put custard and honey on too ?
As with any traditional food there are pages of history and customs, but the simplest way is to eat them when and how you like them.

It's a batter mix. It can sweet or savoury.
I am yorkshire born. A yorkshire pud must be of batter beaten by a true-born yorkshire woman. It is to be served before the joint, with gravy, to blunt the appetite. Absolutely no point serving it after the main course.
When I was a kid Yorkshire pudding was served as a pudding with chopped rhubarb and sugar.
I heard that it was served before the main course so the diner would not eat so much meat. Any leftovers would be eaten the following day with whatever you had to hand.
Absolutely not (I'm a Yorkshirewoman for as far back as possible to trace). Yes they are baked in a large, square or oblong tin - but they are served first with gravy!
My Dad was a Yorkshire man, he said they always had them first.
As a Yorkshireman born and bred and being of Yorkshire descent for centuries, on both maternal and paternal sides, YP is usually served prior to the main roast.....but.....we sometimes ate it after the roast with golden syrup on! Truly scrumptious either way.
Personally I've never understood the attraction of Yorkshire pudding whenever/however it's served but I understand that in Yorkshire it's served before the main course.
My brest friend at college came from Elland, between Huddersfield & Halifax. His father was born in the same area but his mother came from Glasgow, When they had a Sunday roast, Eric had his Yorkshire puddings with his main course but his father had them as a starter (served with gravy) and his mother had them as a dessert (served with custard)!
My mum was from Glasgow - Glaswegians have sweet teeth!
^^^ Why do deep-fried Mars bars come to mind? ;-)
Such a versatile pudding. Grand whichever way you serve it.
I have yet to meet anyone who has eaten a fried mars bar, or indeed seen a chip shop serve them .
I have actually been in my local fish n chips shop when a very large schoolgirl came in with her friend, passed a Snickers bar over the counter and asked if they would deep fry it. Which ensued a conversation about nut allergies etc etc and they basically refused. Was shocked the girl had even asked in the first place - it sounded vile!
Traditionally served first with gravy from the roast to blunt the appetite for the expensive meat.
I'm originally from Derbyshire and I used to have mine after the main meal with sugar and milk on! I was only young then and it was in the 50s!
Yorkshire puddin' with ice cream- lovely!
