Yorkshire puddings — so I’ve heard but never actually witnessed — often get dished up as a pudding up North. Well, our native Yorkshire pudding is a kind of clafoutis, I suppose, so why not serve it as a dessert? When cherries aren’t in season, try using cherries preserved in eau-de-vie to give the puddings a nice kick.


  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 200 ml milk</


Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.

Place all the ingredients except the cherries in a bowl or a small electric whisker and whisk to form a light batter. Lightly grease 4 individual deep Yorkshire pudding tins and put them in the oven for 5 minutes.

Remove the tins fr
