75 g flour
2 eggs (medium)
75 ml milk
50 ml water
12 small or medium sausages

Make sure all your toads are separated! Lay out on a nonstick, oven proof baking tray with a lip or roasting tin. Drizzle with a tiny bit of oil and put in a hot oven (425F).

Fill a standard sized mug about half full with plain flour. Put the flour, two eggs and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl and mix till you have a gloopy paste. Fill about one third of a standard sized mug with milk and then top up with water so the mug half full. Add the water-milk to the bowl, a bit at a time while mixing, making sure the mix stays smooth. Cover the bowl with cling film or a plate and put it in the fridge while the sausages are half cooking.

After the sausages have been cooking for about 10-15 minutes take them out of the oven and pour the hole mix (batter) over them evenly so that the whole base of the tray is covered. Put the tray of sausages and hole mix back in the oven and cook for a further 20-25 minutes or until the batter is golden coloured. Keep an eye on the batter, it should rise nicely and be golden brown, but not burnt. Serve when the toad in the hole batter has risen and is golden.
