As I’m sure you are all aware by now, we love to cook. The boys have their own chef whites and thoroughly enjoy helping in the kitchen!
Last night Noah made the batter for our Toad in the Hole, he was able to count out the measurements by himself, not only did this make him extremely proud of himself, I’m certain he even enjoyed esating it that little bit more.
How we made our Toad in the Hole:
We always make our batter well in advance, it cooks better the longer you leave it. We recomment preparing it atleast an hour in advance, but you can always make it in the morning.
For the batter: 2 large eggs 8 tbsp of plain flour 8 tbsp of milk 8 tbsp of water Combine together and whisk together well.
Top Tip: Using an electric whisk prepares the batter far better than whisking by hand. Try both methods and you’ll see the difference in how it rises.
When we are finally ready to cook our dinner we pre heat our oven to gas mark 6 and put the sausages and a couple of table spooks of oil into a baking dish. We then pop this in the over for 10 minutes.
4 sausages feed the three of us. You may wish to make extra batter if you are cooking more sausages.
After the 10 minutes the oil will be nice and hot, quickly we pour over the batter and return it to the oven until baked and crispy. This usually takes between 30-35 minutes.
Top Tip: No matter how tempted you may be, do not open that oven door, you don’t want to affect your batter rising.
Voila, one of the boys favourite dinners and super easy for them to get invbolved and help to make.
