Yorkshire puddings are what Sunday dreams are made of. But why should these crispy golden delights, which are normally only served up with a roast dinner, be restricted to one day a week?
From mini Yorkshire puddings with beef, which could be handed out as a delicious canapé at your next gathering, to a humble dessert-inspired pud, filled with cream and chocolate sauce - there's a variety of glorious and enticing ways to make the most of the celebrated Sunday staple.
Vegan Yorkshire Puddings
Serve a homemade Yorkshire pud that everyone can tuck into with this ingenious recipe. Instead of eggs, the recipe's secret vegan-friendly ingredient is aquafaba - the water from a tin of chickpeas! The light and fluffy side will be just the finishing touch any plant-based roast dinner needs.

Mini Yorkshire puddings with beef
Use Yorkshire's most famous dish like a bowl and fill your mini puds with a spoonful of horseradish and a slice of beef fillet. Serve them mini for a moreish canape or make them bigger and serve your roast in an eye-catching way.
Yorkshire pudding profiteroles
