TIME: 45 minutes

SERVES: Two

INGREDIENTS

  •   140g plain flour

  •   2 eggs

  •   ½ teaspoon of salt

  •   175ml of milk

  • 4 sausages (or more if you choose!)

  • Oil

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c (fan). Put some oil in an oven proof dish (I used a medium sized dish for two people) and arrange your sausages in the dish, making sure you leave space in between each for the batter. I used normal sausages but you could choose to use chipolatas. Once the oven has preheated, pop the sausages in to cook for 15 minutes.

  2. While the sausages are cooking, make up your batter. Start by adding your flour and salt to a mixing bowl. Then make a little dip in the middle and add two egg yolks and mix. If you have an electric whisk, you may find it easier but I just used a fork and some arm power! While mixing, slowly add in the milk until the batter is smooth in consistency. Leave to stand until the sausages are ready.

  3. When the sausages have been in the oven for 15 minutes, take them out and add the batter around them. If the oil is sizzling, that’s a good sign, if not, pop it back in the oven for a few minutes. 

  4. Once the batter has been added, pop back in the oven for 25–30 minutes. Keep an eye on it to make sure the batter doesn’t burn! Sadly, this is where we had our issue as the batter burnt on top! Doh! (However, it was still very yummy and the inside was cooked perfectly!)

  5. While your toad in the hole is cooking, you may choose to prepare some vegetables or even mashed potato to accompany it. I chose carrots and broccoli and also a healthy amount of gravy! 

After 25-30 minutes, remove your dish from the oven, and serve! Hopefully yours will look a lot less burnt than mine!
