Toad In The Hole

Published Monday, 24 November, 2008 by Kirsty

A british classic



  • 8 Pork sausages
  • 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 225g (8oz) plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 250ml (8 fl oz) milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C /gas mark 6.

2. Pour the oil into the bottom of a baking dish, and arrange the sausages over it in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.

3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs and half of the milk until smooth. Gradually mix in the rest of the milk until a smooth batter is achieved. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Remove the sausages from the oven, and ladle the batter over them until the sausages are 3/4 covered. Return to the oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the centre is risen and browned. Don't worry if the underside seems slightly soft, as this is normal.

    Great Toad in the Hole recipe Kirsty! .....Only one flaw - make sure that if student using a fan oven then the temperature should be set 10 degrees or lower than your specified 200 degrees otherwise the student will need a pickaxe to crack open the blackened yorkshire pud crust!! I'm gonna try some more of your recipes. It was a very kind thought of yours to build your grub site for students. I'm sure that they will relish your recipes inbetween slinging the lager down their throats! Signed - A Student son's single Dad.
