Toad in the Hole

This is just your basic, easy peasy Toad in the Hole. No extras, no frills :) I thought I would share the recipe anyway, as everyone does theirs differently, or some may have never tried it before! Its the perfect dinner for a wet. miserable Sunday afternoon. I served mine with crushed potatoes, sweetcorn & onion gravy.

6 nice butchers sausages
75g plain flour
Salt & pepper
75 ml milk
55 ml water
1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 220c. Add the sausages to an oven-proof tin, and brown in the oven for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare your batter. Sift 75g plain flour into a large mixing bowl & season with salt & pepper. Make a well in the middle & add the eggs. begin mixing the ingredients, add the milk & water a bit at a time. Whisk until all combined and no lumps remain.

remove your tin from the oven & pour over the batter immediately. return to the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the batter has all risen & turned golden.


  1. Hi Jen- I am planning to try this tonight. I was always scared of Toad in the Hole, as it looks really complicated... your recipe looks straightforward, and most yum indeed!

  2. Always enjoy this for tea - definitely YUM!! I usually make onion gravy with mine as well.

    1. Onion gravy is just so perfect with it, isnt it? :)

  3. Thanks Jen- tried it last night and it was delicious!!!!! So light and fluffy. A definite keeper!
