How to Make Toad in the Hole

Posted on February 10, 2012


I made Toad in the Hole for the first time a few days ago, and as I went well I thought I’d put up the recipe because if I can make it, anyone can. I think it’s quite an easy recipe and the size of it can be changed easily depending on how many people you’re making it for. I got the basic recipe from (and changed it a bit), which is great for finding pretty much anything you want to cook.

To serve 4 people, you will need:

  • bowl
  • scales
  • measuring jug
  • baking dish
  • 8 sausages
  • vegetable oil
  • 225g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • salt and pepper

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

2. Cook the sausages under the grill for 10 minutes

3. While the sausages are cooking you can make the batter. Whisk the eggs, flour and half of the milk together. Then whisk in the rest of the milk to make it smooth. Add salt and pepper to season.

4. Coat the bottom of the dish with oil.

5. Place the sausages in spread equally apart.

6. Pour the batter mix around the sausages, coating them slightly.

7. Put into the oven. The recipe says for 40 minutes, but it only took 30 in mine so check regularly. It should be golden brown. (Mine may be slightly burnt)

You can do Toad in the Hole with any vegetables, mash, or just gravy. It’s like a giant yorkshire pudding. 🙂
