Yorkshire Pudding is a delicacy made from flour, eggs, milk, drippings (usually beef) and a pinch of salt . As its name suggests, it originates in Yorkshire, England. One of the oldest recipes can be found in The Art of Cookery by Hannah Glasse, first published in 1796. Another recipe can be found in Mrs. Beeton's 1861 Book of Household Management, a book that has been very influential to British cookery through the ages. Mrs. Beeton suggests that it be served with hot roast beef. The traditional Sunday roast with Yorkshire pudding is "perhaps the biggest culinary indication of a steadfastly traditional household."
