Get the cauldron bubbling with this flavoursome pumpkin pilaf, perfect for warming you up after a busy evening of trick-or-treating! Nicely spiced and easy to make, you can turn up the heat with a sprinkle of chilli, or keep it cool with a Greek yogurt drizzle.
The very shape and nature of the pumpkin lends itself to the art of being stuffed. So what better way to end our savoury recipes than with a delicious take on this popular dish! This recipe may not technically be from Yorkshire, but fear not, simply swap the olive oil for Yorkshire rapeseed oil and you can pass is off as a hearty county favourite – it’s healthier too!
You’ve seen the savoury selection, now feast your eyes on these sweet delights! Yorkshire-based food blog Yorkshire Pudd have shared their recipe for a delicious cheesecake. Try it with orange zest in the filling or crushed walnuts in the base for that something extra! There’s also an optional pumpkin sauce that is quite frankly the pumpkin icing on the (cheese) cake. Guaranteed to be a family favourite, there’s no reason to keep the grubby mitts away from this one, get everyone in the kitchen crumbling biscuits and beating the mix.
These savoury but sweet Yorkshire delights are perfect for a mid-morning snack, or even an after-dinner treat with ice cream! They’re so tempting you might find yourself making a second batch…
