Under Roast Pudding
A simple flour batter - occasionally with spices - cooked in front of the roasting-fire, under the meat, so that it collects drips of meat fat and juices as it cooks. Served as an accompaniment to the meat. The precursor of modern Yorkshire Pudding. Distinct from the Dripping Pudding, which is made seperately from the reserved fat and meat juices.
