Marmadukes  Sheffield: White Hot Chocolate

Looks like milk. It is sweet, light and comforting.


National Yorkshire pudding day 13th October.

I love ❤️ Yorkshire puddings. They are made from the same batter as English pancakes; but end up different as baked in the oven. 

Yorkshire puddings are traditionally, served on a Sunday with Roast beef. However some people like them, so much that they will have with any meat they have as part of a traditional roast Sunday dinner. My Mum, makes great Yorkshire puddings but only with roast beef so I have grown to love roast beef because of that. I rarely cook a Sunday dinner myself and therefore have not made Yorkshire puddings much. 

In Yorkshire they can be served as a starter on own with gravy. The first time, I had them like this  was at a boyfriend’s parent’s house. It was presented to me in the centre of the plate so, not knowing I pushed to one side thinking needed to fit rest of the dinner on. I do not like served that way; if having starter want something else. I like my Yorkshire puddings with rest of the dinner and often will save some to eat last as best but of the dinner. Also I do not just want 1 as I love ❤️ them. I want three and then if when finished there are more left I will have another, I would probably have more than one more but in my Mum’s household it would not happen so many left…Although New Year’s Day 2017 somehow there were a few leftover so I heated up to have with golden syrup like a pancake. As mentioned, they are made from the same batter as pancakes and love ❤️ proper English pancakes.

You can buy frozen Yorkshire puddings but they can be tasteless. Homemade is best!

Also with Yorkshire pudding batter you can make toad in the hole which is a massive Yorkshire pudding with sausages in. You can also have giant  Yorkshire puddings where they are used as like an edible bowl for something like beef stewed; this gets called filled giant Yorkshire puddings.

Enjoy Yorkshire pudding day! 


Marmaduke hot chocolate 

Lovely heart on top. Good but not outstanding hot chocolate.

Great food in cafe. I had a lovely piece of blue cheese quiche and an interesting salad featuring grains, cauliflower and pomegranates. Followed by hot chocolate.

There are lots of menu choices for vegatarians and even some for vegans.

Pretty floor tiles at the foot of the stairs. The cafe is split across 3 floors so cute small rooms. Lots of wood and colourful cushions.



Hot chocolate and cruffin at Steam Yard Sheffield

A cruffin is a cross between a muffin and croissant. Muffin shaped, crossiant taste and flakiness albeit with little sponginess texture in middle like a muffin. I had chocolate and mandarin. It had lots of delicious thick chocolate orange filling.

Hot chocolate had good intense chocolately  taste.

My order cost just over £6. There was also doughnuts for £2.85 which seemed expensive when can buy 5 pack from supermarkets for £1. However there was a range of doughnut flavours.
