Toad in the hole

I never used to be able to get toad in the hole right, it always ended up looking like either a cake with sausages burried inside it or a pancake with a few sausages stuck to it, neither were what I was aiming for of course. I scouted for recipes and settled on one by Nigel Slater, he uses some additional ingredients to jazz it up a bit but I’ve taken the basics to come up with a great dish that works every time.


  • 2 eggs
  • 125g plain flour
  • 150ml milk
  • 150ml water
  • 6 fat sausages
  • 3 tbsp lard or dripping

Whisk together the eggs, plain flour, milk and water. Rest for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Place the fat in a roasting dish and leave in the oven until it’s smoking hot. Place the sausages in the dish spaced apart and pour over the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. I am going to try this EXACTLY as you have told me now – mine don’t usually work out and stick. Wish me luck.
