My Top 3 Favorite Classic British Recipes

Yorkshire_PuddingI am fond of British classic dishes. For instance, if you are looking for ideas for a Sunday roast, you could try  Yorkshire pudding recipe my up to date recipe:

Put together flour, salt, eggs, milk as well as nutmeg in order to form a batter. It should rest for almost an hour.
The ingredients are the following:

  • 175g of strong bread flour
  • 4 eggs
  • salt
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 300 ml of full-fat milk

You should heat a nonstick Yorkshire pudding tray with fat and then place it in the oven at 200°C/Gas mark 6 till the fat is smoking.

  • 1 dollop of lard

Pour in the batter and after that cook for approx. 20-25 minutes until it is well risen. You should serve it immediately as accompaniment to some traditional roast.

There is no Sunday lunch without pudding. Therefore, the British desserts should be by all means cooked and served on Sunday. Here is a recipe for the Shortbread Biscuits.

Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3.

You should start by creaming together the butter and sugar in some large mixing bowl. Then incorporate the flours until smooth, afterwards break the dough into four pieces. Roll out into 5cm long logs, then wrap in cling film and place it in the fridge in order to set for at least 2 hours.
Here are the ingredients:

  • 225g of icing sugar
  • 450g of plain flour
  • 450g of butter
  • 225g of corn flour

When it is nice and firm, you should remove the cling film from the logs and then slice it into 5mm thick discs. Then lay the biscuits out on a baking tray, placing them in the oven for around 8 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven, sprinkle with sugar and then place it on a wire rack to cool.

  • 20g of caster sugar, for sprinkling

One of my favorite recipes is Eton Mess as well. This is how it can be made.

In order to succeed in making this recipe, you should chop the strawberries and put them into a bowl and add sugar and pomegranate juice and then leave it to macerate when you whip the cream.

Then you should whip the cream into a large bowl till it is thick but still soft. Then roughly crumble in four of the meringues nests – you need chunks for the texture and a little fine dust.

The next step is to take out about half a cupful of the chopped strawberries, and then fold the meringue cream as well as the rest of the fruit mixture together.

Arrange on four serving plates, glasses or in a mound, and then top each of them with some of the remaining macerated strawberries.

To conclude, please find all the ingredients for this tasteful recipe:

  • 2 teaspoons caster or vanilla sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pomegranate juice
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 4 cups strawberries
  • 1 packet individual meringue nests

Have a good meal!
