Toad in the hole is one of those classic dinnertime dishes that everyone knows from their childhood. It’s a delicious meal with mashed potatoes and a drizzle of gravy, plus it’s not too difficult to make either.
- 125g plain flour
- 300ml beer
- 8 sausages
- Pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- Vegetable oil
Sift the flour into a large bowl with the salt and then make a well in the centre.
Crack the eggs into the well and start to bring the flour into the eggs.
Slowly pour in the beer and whisk everything together until smooth.
Cover the batter and leave it in the fridge for at least an hour.
Preheat the oven to 220C/gas mark 7.
Cook the sausages in some vegetable oil in a frying pan for ten minutes until browned.
Drain the sausages of fat on some kitchen towel.
Pour some vegetable oil into a large baking tin and then heat it in the oven for 5 minutes or until smoking.
Put the sausages into the tin and then pour the batter over them.
Cook for 25 minutes or until risen and golden. Serve hot from the tin.
