Toad in the Hole
2 tablespoons of olive oil
115g (4oz) flour
A pinch of black pepper
300ml (10fl oz) milk
300ml (10 fl oz) of olive oil
1.3 kg (3lb) flour
½ teaspoon black pepper
3.4 litres (6 pints) milk
To start the Yorkshire, sift the flour and pepper into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
Beat the eggs and add to the flour, along with half the milk.
Beat well until the batter is smooth, and then add the remaining milk.
Put to one side while the oven heats up to 220 degrees C / 425 degrees F/Gas 7.
Heat the oil in a small roasting tin on top of the stove, and add the sausages.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, until just browned.
Reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees C/400 degrees F/Gas 6.
Remove the sausages from the oven and quickly pour the batter into the tin around the sausages.
Put back into the oven immediately, and bake until risen and golden brown, a further 30–35 minutes.
