  • 12 Sausages/336g Sausage, Chipolata, Average
  • 1 Tbsp/15ml Oil, Sunflower, Average
  • 140g Flour, Plain, Average
  • ½ Tsp/2.5g Salt, Average
  • 2 Eggs/116g Eggs, Medium, Average, Weight with Shell
  • 175ml Milk, Semi Skimmed, Average


Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

Put the sausages in a 20 x 30cm roasting tin with the oil, then bake for 15 mins until browned.

Meanwhile, make up the batter mix. Tip the flour into a bowl with the salt, make a well in the middle and crack both eggs into it. Use an electric whisk to mix it together, then slowly add the milk, whisking all the time. Leave to stand until the sausages are nice and brown.

Carefully remove the sausages from the oven – watch because the fat will be sizzling hot – but if it isn’t, put the tin on the hob for a few mins until it is. Pour in the batter mix, transfer to the top shelf of the oven, then cook for 25-30 mins, until risen and golden.
