These are the barmiest ways to eat a Yorkshire pudding

by Northern Life

To celebrate National Yorkshire Pudding Day on 3rd February, Wren Kitchens has sourced the barmiest ways to eat a Yorkshire pudding. Sweet or savoury, it’s your pick!

The classic Yorkshire pudding served with a Sunday roast is still the nation’s favourite[5], however Wren Kitchens has always been a fan of a little British ingenuity – which is why it’s found the best of the nation’s weird and wonderful takes on the Yorkshire pudding popping out of ovens across the UK.

From Yorkshire pudding ice cream cones to Yorkshire pudding pizza, you decide if these alternatives are mealtime heaven or supper sacrilege.

Chocolate Yorkshire pudding profiteroles

Yorkshire puddings aren’t just for your main course, they make a delicious dessert too. Some have been known to add pancake toppings, like lemon and sugar, to a plain Yorkshire pudding and simply get stuck in like it’s Shrove Tuesday. Others might go the extra mile and create Yorkshire pudding chocolate profiteroles.
