A HUDDERSFIELD district ice cream firm has scooped approval to serve up more sundaes.

Denby Dale based Yummy Yorkshire has been given the green light to expand its parlour at Delph House Farm near High Flatts.

The award winning company, launched in 2007, said its current premises were not big enough to satisfy demand.

It is now set to build a single storey extension on the side of the existing building in order to fit in a bigger seating area.

The company also plans to improve vehicular access to its Penistone Road site and add three more parking spaces.

And the company has also come up with a recipe to celebrate Yorkshire Day on Monday (August 1).

Staff have come up with a Yorkshire Pudding ice cream flavour in honour of the county’s big day on August 1.

The new ice cream has been created using traditional Yorkshire puddings, gravy and raspberry vinegar combined with natural dairy ice cream.

The Yorkshire puddings and gravy for the recipe are produced by Yummy Yorkshire’s own chef, Jacqui Rumney, while the raspberry vinegar comes from Leeds-based gourmet vinegar specialist, Womersley.

Louise Holmes, co-founder of Yummy Yorkshire said: “To celebrate Yorkshire Day, we wanted to show our appreciation of the county in the way we know best – through ice cream.

“The flavour sounds like it shouldn’t work but it does. The Yorkshire pudding is made up of batter that is actually very similar to a pancake mix, so it combines well with the sweetness of the ice cream.

“The gravy adds a saltiness which is balanced out by the raspberry vinegar,” Louise added.
