The Whole Duty of a Woman 1737 by William Kenrick

Dripping Pudding

"Make a good Batter as for Pancakes, put it in a hot Toss-pan over the Fire with a Bit of Butter to fry the Bottom a little, then put the Pan and Batter under a Shoulder of Mutton instead of a Dripping-pan, keeping frequently shaking it by the Handle and it will be light and savoury and fit to take up when your Mutton is enough; then turn it in a Dish, and serve it hot."

It will come as no surprise that historically batter is a common base for a wide range of food stuffs in the British kitchen.
Batter was boiled in a cloth to produce puddings, used to produce various fritter or made into pancakes.
It is this latter batter that is essentially the basis of the Yorkshire Pudding. Many early historical recipes produce products that are very similar to the Yorkshire Pudding

William Kenrick (c. 1725 – 10 June 1779) was an English novelist, playwright, translator and satirist, who spent much of his career libelling and lampooning his fellow writers. #Satire
