The Great British Bake Off contestants just started the great Yorkshire Pudding debate

By  | 

The Great British Bake Off contestants whipped up some Yorkshire puds for the show’s first ever batter week but nobody at home seemed particularly impressed with their efforts.

Whether it was the wrong mixture or too many fillings, viewers at home were not impressed. Even Mary Berry was alarmed by some of the efforts.

None of them is keeping the oil/baking tray hot on the stove as they batter up. Hmm. *judgmental expert face* #gbbo

Identical? Little cups?? Curry filling??? They're Yorkshire puds, not vol au vonts! #GBBO

Instead of putting the filling inside the Yorkie puds why not put it on the outside with 5x the quantity #GBBO pic.twitter.com/MHOJbxOY7q

But the other great debate came from a revelation that not everyone has Yorkshire puddings with Christmas lunch. Oh the controversy!

My face tonight after learning some people don't have Yorkshire puddings at Christmas #GBBO pic.twitter.com/OadyCr4XtQ
