Apple crumble sweet Yorkshire puddings

I must admit I was quite excited when I heard there was going to be a newly introduced batter week in the GBBO; even more so when I saw what the challenges were going to be! I did actually consider doing them all, believe it or not. In the end though I just went with the signature as churros were pointless because we don’t own a deep fat fryer, and the pancakes just looked too technical for me to bother with.

I wanted to be a bit different though, so I went for sweet Yorkshire puddings. It’s getting to autumn now and it’s such a great season for crumbles for pudding! So I went with a lovely sweet apple & blackberry filling with a sprinkle of crumble topping for a bit of crunch. They are absolutely delicious served with a drizzle of custard! (Though admittedly, I didn’t make my own, it was Bird’s!).

Ingredients (makes 8)

Yorkshire puddings

  • 4 eggs
  • 140g plain flour
  • 200ml milk
  • oil

Fruit filling

  • 2 cooking apples, peeled and diced
  • 1tbsp water
  • 1tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/2tsp cinammon
  • 1/2tsp mixed spice
  • 100g blackberries

Crumble topping

  • 30g plain flour
  • 15g soft butter
  • 15g caster sugar


Yorkshire puddings

  • Preheat oven to gas 7/220c/425f.
  • Pour 1tsp or so of oil into 8 holes of a 12 hole deep muffin tin, and place in the oven to heat.
  • In a large jug, mix together the eggs and flour. Add the milk and whisk until frothy and there are no lumps.
  • When the oil in the tin is sizzling hot, pour the batter equally between the holes.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the Yorkshire puddings are well risen and golden brown.

Fruit filling

  • While the Yorkshire puddings are baking, add all ingredients for the fruit filling (other than the blackberries) to a pan and mix well.
  • Heat gently over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  • After around 10 minutes, add the blackberries and stir. Cook for a further 4 or 5 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool a little.

Crumble topping

  • In a bowl, mix the crumble ingredients with your hands until they resemble a breadcrumb consistency.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the mixture evenly on the tray.
  • Bake in the already heated oven for 5 minutes then remove and leave to cool; it will harden more as it cools.
  • To assemble, simply dollop some of the fruit into each Yorkshire pudding, sprinkle some crumble on top, and enjoy! We served ours with custard.

I have to admit I was a bit dubious about sweet Yorkshire puddings as I’d never had them before, but they were really really delicious – I think I will definitely make them again!
