    The clue is in the name. It’s from Yorkshire. Even The U S English spell checker capitalises it.
    Just like the Brits, it is flexible and can be sweet or savoury.
    If you bothered reading the thread before replying you would know this.
    A pie can also be sweet or savoury and it has a lid. That’s my definition. Wait and see how many agree with it before you decide.
    Pizza does not qualify as a pie. No lid no pie. Everything else is a flan. Good old fashioned English word that.

    Probably the lumps of "pastry" you and your palate are accustomed to, do all have the same texture, taste and appearance. Some world renowned chefs and foodies can appreciate and produce many variations. The Yorkshire pudding is but one of thousands of subtly different, pastries.

    But as you say your knowledge of pastries is limited.
    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.

    They're pumpkin flan and macadamia nut cream flan, respectively.

    correct. Even our erstwhile and much loved cousins from the commonwealth have been badly infected by this cheeky merkin language manipulation.
    No lid no pie. Both of HNZs pictures are flans.

    No, Yorkshire pudding should not/never have a filling, this would defeat the purpose of it. It is/was served either before or in later days with the main meal, the purpose of the mighty Yorkshire pudding was to be filling, while being very cheap, the more Yorkshire pudding folks ate, the less meat they would have room for, the gravy that would be served in/with the Yorkshire pudding was made from the juices of the meat and vegetables and was in itself a "treat"
    oh my god,,,, oh for one of mums roast dinners.... the gravy,,,, just as u discribe uummmm

    Well in a way they have.

    Pudding is the last course of a meal. Only chavs or others call it dessert.

    OR

    Pudding is a dish boiled or steamed while in something. Like a dish or a piece of cloth or even in animal instetine.

    America just discovered the Yorkshire Pudding and Brits are furious about it.
    Fake news chaps.

    1. The Brits are not furious about a so-called recent American "discovery" of the Yorkshire Pudding.
    2. Americans have something similar that they call the "popover" and they've had that for over 150 years. Apparently.

    Obviously, another ^ (typically know-it-all) Brit, eh? The denial constipation never ceases with that ^ peculiar mentality.

    The OP title is quite believably not fake news. Considering the historical facts, the perpetually contentious “chaps” seem to own a disproportionate amount.......(by reputation)

    of provocative altercations (with “the natives”), than any other demographic group of expatriates,…….everywhere………they go. And, that is an indisputably documented fact.

    Now, returning to the OP topic title (evolved) "bakery" one-upmanship debate ~

    Ditto! Now, mind your own "Spanky" business, for a change.

    True story ~ I've tasted a better version of Yorkshire "pudding" made in Germany (yes, indeed), than any of what I'd ever tasted, anywhere in the UK.

    If it is served last after a full meal , then the answer is Pudding. Did I explain it incorrectly the first time?

    Next you'll be saying that Entree which means to enter in French is the main course?

    On the first day in the cafe
    I was looking at all the food
    There was veg and birds and spuds and things
    There was sauce and onion rings

    The first thing I ordered was a chicken curry
    And some rice with a keema naan bread
    The sauce was hot and the rice was fine
    But the bread was stale and dry.

    Now I wish I'd eaten just a dessert with no main
    And I'm regretting that I ever came.
    With a good dessert you'll forget about the main
    'Cause there ain't no meat for to give you no pain
    La, la, la, la, la, al, la

    I would suggest the pudding is served prior to the cheese course and hence is not the last course.

    Possible coffee and wafer thin mints, After Eights I believe they were called, as well. They were at firm favourites at our local Indian/Persian restaurants.

    It varies depending on which taste one wants on the palate at the end of a meal. So it can be served either before (French) pudding or after (British) pudding.

    Megan Markle will already have learnt to call it pudding!

    I live a little, but learn a lot, unfortunately nowadays I forget most of it. Can be useful or frustrating, if i remember rightly.
