  • 2 eggs
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 185 ml milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Add the oil to an oven-proof pan/tray - mine is a square 23cm, 9 inches.

  2. Arrange the sausages in the pan, and bake in the preheated oven at 220 degrees Celsius (430 Fahrenheit) for 15 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked.

  3. Meanwhile, make the batter.

  4. Sift the flour in a large pan, and make a well in the middle.

  5. Add the eggs, and whisk well to get a paste. (or use a hand mixer).

  6. Pour in the milk whisking well to get a smooth batter, then season with salt and pepper.

  7. If the batter is not smooth enough, pass it through a sieve to get the right texture.

  8. When the sausages are cooked, pour over the batter, and bake for a further 20-25 minutes or until golden and fully risen.
