Dripping Pudding

Puddings and Sweet Deserts

Batter of eggs, dripping, sugar, cream, flour and dried fruit, baked in cups. This dish is made with the melted fat that drips from roasting meat, distinct from the 'under-roast' puddings made by allowing fat to drip onto a dish of batter during the roasting process.

Original Receipt in 'A Shilling Cookery for The People' by Alexis Soyer (Soyer 1845);

374. Dripping Pudding.- Three eggs and their weight in dripping, two tablespoonfuls of sifted sugar; beat them up until a cream, add a few currants, and the flour gradually, until it forms a stiff paste; bake in cups previously buttered.
