A yorkshire pudding is a savoury, puffed up, egg flour and milk thingy.... served with roast meats, most commonly, the roast beef of olde England...

I'm kind of with Alix on this. The fact that British (and British ex-colonies) use a common term for puddings is one thing - but Americans and Europeans wouldn't use even similar terms...

Steamed puddings, like spotted dick, jam roly-poly etc are particularly British - and in many cases, I don't believe they would ever be to the taste of, say, Americans!

I think it's GREAT that we all have our own specialities... that's what makes this site so interesting. I mean, I am often sitting at my puter, open-mouthed at some of the recipes.... here, we have no milk based 'gravies'... But they are widespread in the US and enjoyed by many of the posters.

Horses for courses!

Hey Bug, I think Yorkshire pudding is savory. I had it once served in a private home with an incredible beef dish, burgandy?, tenderloin?, was like a giant popover with beef stuff under it. It was quite good.

And no one has mentioned Bakewell pudding. Is this a different creature?

Thanks, Ish - I knew what they were. Aren't they yummy, Beth? What I was getting at is that that particular pud (the Yorkie) is so unlike the other British puds. Much lighter, and savory rather than sweet.

Oh my dear mudbug, you are forgetting things like Blood pudding and Suet pudding. Pudding covers a WIDE range of stuff from savory to sweet.

I'm sure that I posted my family recipe for Yorkshire pudding a long time ago... And it's Bakewell Tart, not pudding! Bakewell is a town in Derbyshire and the Bakewells are sold in every cake shop in the town!

And we have lots of savoury 'puddings' - including Steak and Kidney pudding - a steamed pastry enclosing braising steak, kidneys and onions.

Not in my house, Alix!! But you're right, I hadn't thought of those.
