04/02/2018- BRITISH YORKSHIRE PUDDING DAY
British Yorkshire pudding Day – each February, the first Sunday of the month is designated British Yorkshire Pudding Day. In 2018, the day will be celebrated on 4 February.
Yorkshire pudding is an English food made from a batter consisting of eggs, flour, and milk or water. As a first course, it can be served with onion gravy. For the main course, it is often served with beef and gravy and is part of the traditional Sunday roast, but can also be filled with foods such as bangers and mash to make a meal. Jam and sugar can be added instead if served as a dessert.
Yorkshire pudding is cooked by pouring a batter made from milk (or water), flour and eggs into preheated, oiled, baking pans, ramekins or muffin tins (in the case of miniature puddings). A basic formula uses 1⁄3 cup flour and 1⁄3 cup liquid per egg. Water produces a lighter crisper but less sweet pudding than using milk.
Yorkshire Pudding Day is celebrating on the first Sunday in February in Britain and on October 13 in the United States.
