History of Mothering Sunday

What food would have been on the historic table on Mothering Sunday?
One might expect a bowl of steeped peas fried in butter with salt and pepper in the North of England, or some pancakes known as carlings. An article in the Morpeth Herald dated 1888 suggests that in North East England the tradition of eating carlings on this day became so strong that it became known locally as Carling Sunday.
