1 February sees second National Yorkshire Pudding Day

I must admit I did think this was a joke when I first came across it, but this Sunday, 1 February, is National Yorkshire Pudding Day.

This annual event – now in its second year – was founded by to celebrate the famous Yorkshire Pudding.

Originally called the Dripping or Batter Pudding – a somewhat flatter version of today’s Yorkshires – they have been cooked for centuries in Britain.

Hannah Glasse is famously recognised as changing their name to Yorkshire Pudding in her book ‘Art of cookery made plain and simple’ which saw the printing of the first Yorkshire Pudding recipe in 1747.
