So, when am I coming up for lunch?

13 Jan, 2011

 

Nice :):):):)

Just how they should be Yorkshire. T won't mix them as they always come out like biscuits when he does, probably because he adds too much milk. My mother is a Yorkshire lass and would be disgusted if we resorted to bought ones. I freeze any left over on Sundays and warm them in the oven during the week. Although when we have company there are never any left over. Far nicer than Aunt Bessie's. Do you have them first with gravy or on the plate with dinner, and after with jam or syrup....mmmmmmmm

Love yorkshire puds.

13 Jan, 2011

 

OH said thank you all very much, Alex, your welcome anytime, hope you enjoyed yours Sticki, I certainly did,Homebird I never thought about freezing them down, what a good idea, we always have them 1st with gravy, only way really,I remember my Mum having jam on them, Lulu go get your glasses on please, you'll end up a walking nightmare,Amy here you go, your honoured my husband giving his recipe away,
for 12 puddings.
4oz plain flour
4 eggs
half pint milk,
salt pepper.
WHISK well and leave in the cool for a few hours, oven 220d or 200 fan oven, put the lard in the pudding tins until piping hot, whisk again so there are lots of air bubbles in the mixture, divide to the tins and cook for 20/25 mins, turn down the heat to 200/180fan and cook for a further ten minutes, Enjoy.

Mmmm they do look delicious a few roast potatoes and a thick sliceof roast beef and my tum is rumbling lol thanks to your clever hubby for the recipe;0)

13 Jan, 2011

 

your welcome Pp

13 Jan, 2011

 

yummy yorkshire, i could sit with a plate full and a bowl of gravy just dunking them in,, ummm

13 Jan, 2011

 

They look delicious Val, would you congratulate hubby for me. A Roast Dinner isn't a roast without a good ol' Yorkshire. Do you cook them in the middle of the oven Val or at the top? I am certainly going to have a go at his recipe,and see if mine look anything like his do!!!!! Haha (lol)

Thank's so much for the recipe Yorkshire , and thanks to your hubby , I will be copying it and trying it out , I obviously dont leave them standing long enough , I don't turn the heat down either , wish me luck with my new batch ;o))

14 Jan, 2011

 

Good luck Amy, we hope they turn out great for you, Lin if its a fan oven as we have he cooks them on the 2nd shelf up from the bottom.

14 Jan, 2011

 

owww they do look good : O ))

14 Jan, 2011

 

Lovely yorkshires. Didn't the people in Yorkshire have them first with gravy then eat the rest of their meal on another plate or have I been told a fable.

15 Jan, 2011

 

thats true Lin, we always eat ours as a starter.

15 Jan, 2011

 

They had their Yorkshire puddings as a starter first,because it helped to fill them up,as they couldn't afford to have a bigger portion of meat...and still have Y,pudding with the main meal as well..!My mum used to have a couple with sugar on, as her pudding,but I didn't like it like that..The secret to them rising well,as Val and her Hubby will agree,I'm sure..the fat has to be sizzling hot,before adding the mixture..so be patient,it takes a few minutes....Val,I often make double the quantity,in advance,cook them,and when cold,open freeze them on 2 baking trays,or one at a time ,if space is limited ,to keep them flat.When frozen,just bag them up,I do 6 to a bag. so easy and quick just to reheat when you want some..about 150/160 fan..on a preheated tray...about 5 minutes...I don't let them brown too much when cooking ,as they will brown more on reheating...My first ones I ever made,were flat as pancakes,and Russell asked if we were having cheese with them..Lol.he thought they were crackers...I cried..newly wed..divorce was imminent...but we weathered the storm..:o)))

15 Jan, 2011

 

I think I will start freezing them down, sounds a good idea. everything you say is so right about puddings, my Mum had then cold with jam on, as you say the fat needs to be sizzling, hope you and russel are fine, had to laugh at you and your puddings, cheese!!! lol

16 Jan, 2011

 

They were such a disaster,Val,..and I was a bit over sensitive..not any more! my motto now,is eat it or leave it.Lol..not that he ever does leave anything,so I must have improved over the years..I never did any cooking at home,as my mum didn't work,and there was always a lovely aroma and good food waiting for me and dad..so I was a complete dumbo,when it came to cooking..
I was surprised you used 4 eggs in your recipe,I only use 3 to 6oz flour...I suppose we all have different methods,but if they work for us,that's ok..We are both fine,Val,hope you and Ralph are too...X

16 Jan, 2011

 

Oooooh yummy I'm only just back on line we have been poorly so missed sending in a request...... maybe next time!! Uncle Ralph's better than Aunt Bessie's by far!!

16 Jan, 2011

 

Glad you are back Neellan, and hope you are feeling better, your request will be first next time, and yes you are so right, Uncle Ralph's are so much better than Aunt Bessie's, thanks, he will apprecciate what you said,

17 Jan, 2011

11 Feb, 2011

 

Now take that back Bloomeer, Ive just been watching Silver on You Tube..he may be 60, but he gallops as fast as he ever did!!

11 Feb, 2011

 

give me strengh, now she's watching you tube, what next,

12 Feb, 2011

 

It was great to see Hi Ho Silver again Yorkie (welcome by the way but still a puffing puter I gather) he is as beautiful as I remember!

12 Feb, 2011

 

I do believe I am cracking up here, I am going to look at you tube to find out what you have been viewing, Hi Ho silver, whatever next. what was it called you were looking at please

12 Feb, 2011

 

hurry up Tet I have youtube waiting on,

12 Feb, 2011

 

sorry Yorkie, been gardening...I googled The Lone Ranger's Horse and chose the video from Utube.

12 Feb, 2011

 

well you certainly took your time Mrs. its to cold to be in the garden,

12 Feb, 2011

 

But the sun was shining (cold wind tho) and things to do cos its gonna rain tomorrow..sorry ole thing I should have heard you from the greenhouse..but getting deaf in me old age!

12 Feb, 2011

 

try taking a fog horn with you next time then, that might help,we had a bit of sun but just far to cold, yer, rained all night here and more forecast for tomorrow,

12 Feb, 2011

 

Praps you can lend me your ear trumpet Yorkie! Pity its not a bigger greenhouse...cant get the mod cons in this one, only 6 x 4...no room for a chair or coffee percolator..thinking of putting down old piece of carpet to stop cold feet tho..
Could to with Bampy, Id love a bank of levers where you could pull one and out comes the compost into the tray, then another for vermiculate, another for grit and a mechanical spoon to mix it for you...
I could just see myself, sat on chair coffee in one hand, fag in the other..pulling levers and watching the plants being potted up lol!
Did you find Silver on the utube?

12 Feb, 2011

 

Thanks for the recipe..yum:-) Tet's turned into Wallace (except for the fag) it won't help with your weight loss regime Tet, you'd be better doing a few laps around the greenhouse;-)

13 Feb, 2011

 

Standing still in one place while I pot on 20 plants doesnt help with my poor ankles either Ba, but 20 laps to and from plants shelves outside do! Then a trip around all the beds to see how everything doing..dont tell anyone, but I bend down to touch each plant and whisper in their ears to grown up nice and strong!

13 Feb, 2011

 

obviously you have better wetaher than us down there if you are outside, very windy here with rain today, enjoy your greenhouse.

13 Feb, 2011

 

Raining all day here, miserable grey day:-(

13 Feb, 2011

 

A large warm cardi and a shawl sized scarf over my head does it..its sort of drizzley with intermittant steadier rain..the cardi keeps the wind out!

Dont ask me what I must look like..neighbours already think Im mad!

13 Feb, 2011

 

whats new, so do we,

13 Feb, 2011

 

LOL! Glad I wasnt drinking when I read that!!!!!

13 Feb, 2011

 

hahahahahahah
