For royal watchers, the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is THE supreme reason to pull out all the stops and throw an English-themed party. The menu, of course, is key to success.

Begin with bismarks, also known as Dutch babies and German pancakes. Though this oven pancake isn’t commonly served as a breakfast item in England, its savory counterpart, Yorkshire pudding, is served for Sunday dinner, with leftovers offered with jam for dessert. Use any fruit for the filling; fresh berries are particularly good, but sautéed apples with cinnamon and sugar are tasty as well.

1 cup milk
4 eggs
1 cup bread flour, sifted
