Why reserve Yorkshire puddings for your main with Tristan Welch’s tempting dessert recipe, pairing the battered delight with home-made ice cream and lashings of caramel


1. For the ice cream: bring the milk, cream and vanilla to the boil. Whisk the yolks and sugar together, add the cream and pour back into the pan and cook out until it coats the back of a spoon.

4. Pre-heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Add a little oil or dripping into the Yorkshire pudding tin and once hot, add the batter. Bake for 20-30 mins.

5. For the caramel sauce: add sugar to a warmed frying pan and allow to caramelise.

Top tip from Tristan to use liquid glucose in the ice cream, makes it very smooth & velvety.

Simple & tasty, but just a little unusual. Flavours can be easily changed through the ice cream.
