Okay so you don’t need me to tell you that the world has gone freakin’ doolally for the Yorkshire Pudding Wrap. It has gone more viral than Ebola. It has taken over the country. Now being the little English rose that I am, I bloody love a good roast dinner so when I saw that bad boy gracing my Facebook feed, I nearly gave myself whiplash I slammed the breaks on so hard. (The metaphorical breaks of course. Don’t Facebook and drive, duh!)
Alas, with queues starting to snake their way around the various York Roast Co. shops across the UK, I could see my dreams of shoving one of these in my mush sideways diminishing before my hungry eyes. However as my good friend Aaliyah once said, if at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and… get yourself down your local supermarket and bag the ingredients to whip up your very own Yorkshire Pudding Wrap magic at home.
So I gave it a go and yep, it was nigh on orgasmic. Juicy steak and rich gravy oozing from a steaming hot pudding – all crisp on the outside and soft in the middle – that I had nurtured in my very own oven. Never one to settle, I began thinking how I could up my Yorkshire Pudding Wrap game and come up with something that would make eating another one, consecutively, socially acceptable…
Et voila – my Honey-friend Banana & Nutella Yorkshire Pudding Wrap was born. The sweet Yorkshire Pudding dessert to end all sweet Yorkshire Pudding desserts so grab your shopping list because I’m about to change your life with this super simple, quick-as-you-like recipe…
Here’s what you’re going to need: (Serves 2)
- 6 level scoops of Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Pudding Mix
- 2 medium eggs
- 200ml cold water
- Fry Light Coconut Oil spray (Olive Oil will do)
- 1 Banana
- Teaspoon of Manuka honey (or regular honey will do)
- Knob of butter (I used Flora Proactiv spread)
- As much Nutella as you can handle
The method in the madness:
- Preheat your oven to 220°c (gas mark 7)
- Tip your Yorkshire Pudding mix, cold water and eggs into a mixing bowl.
- Whisk until completely combined and lump free. Nobody likes a lumpy pud.
- Spray your casserole dish liberally with your Fry Light of choice.
- Pop the empty dish into the oven for 1-2 minutes to allow the oil to heat up.
- Remove the dish from the oven and pour in your Yorkie batter.
- Cook for around 20-25 minutes or until you’ve got something that looks a little bit like this…
Whilst your pud is cooking away in the oven:
- Chop your banana straight down the middle and in half to create slices.
- Spray a frying pan liberally with your Fry Light cooking oil.
- Pop a knob of butter and a teaspoon of honey into the pan.
- Melt together until everything combines into a sweet, sticky, molten sauce.
- Fry your banana slices on a medium-high heat, keeping a close eye so as not to burn.
Once your pud is cooked and your bananas are sticky AF:
- Slice your GIANT Yorkshire Pudding down the middle. Sharing is caring.
- Coat each half with plenty of Nutella (or similar chocolate spread)
- Layer the banana slices on each half.
- Roll it up baby!
Now all that’s left to do it get stuck right in! If you fancy giving my recipe a bit of festive spice, why not add a sprinkling of Nutmeg into the pudding batter, or a dash of Cinnamon into the banana frying sauce? You could even replace the Nutella with peanut butter – the world is your Yorkshire Pudding wrap, buddy.
