Believed to date back to the 12th century, Yorkshire pudding may have originated in the kitchens of King Henry II, where drippings from roasting mutton were used to flavor baked batters. This technique, most likely Saxon in origin, resulted in a "pudding" rich with meat flavor, but much heavier than the popover-like dish preferred today
