Toad in the Hole recipe

A true British classic, the toad in the hole is adored by kids and adults alike. This is the simplest version of the dish - sausages are roasted and then coated in a lovely Yorkshire pudding batter before being baked in a hot oven. Remember, don't open the door whilst cooking!


  • 8 pork sausages
  • 225g plain flour
  • 250ml milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil to fry


  1. Drizzle the bottom of an oven dish with oil. Arrange the sausages in the dish in a single layer, then bake in a 200C oven for 10 minutes, turning half way through.

  2. Whisk the eggs and flour together until smooth. Gradually add the milk, whisking all the while until you have a smooth batter. Season with salt and pepper and whisk again.

  3. Pour the batter over the sausages until they are 3/4 covered. Put back into the oven and cook for 35 minutes, until risen and golden.

If you have extra batter because you used a shallow baking dish, just make Yorkshire puddings out of it. It will keep for a few days in the fridge. This recipe serves 4.
