FOODY FRIDAY - Left over pancake mixture?

Pancake and Yorkshire pudding mix

We both love pancakes so what better an opportunity is there to make pancakes than PANCAKE DAY!!

When I make pancakes I always find that I make too much pancake mix and then we get too full of pancakes. So, this year I found a recipe for TOAD IN THE HOLE and instead of using all the batter for the Toads I saved some for a few pancakes for dessert....YUMMY!

Toad in the Hole with Onion Gravy
Onion gravy


6 sausages

For the batter
75g plain flour
1 egg
75ml milk
55ml water

For the gravy:
2 onions
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsps oil
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp mustard
425ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp plain flour

Toad in the Hole
  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 7 or 220C.
  2. Make the batter, sieve the flour into a bowl. Put a dip in the flour and break an egg into it.
  3. Mix the milk and water together in a jug.
  4. Whisk the egg and flour slowly adding the the water/milk mixture slowly. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Slice the onions and mix with sugar 2 tsps of oil.
  6. Spread out on a baking tray.
  7. Place the sausages in a roasting tin (or large pudding tins).
  8. Put the onions on the top shelf in the oven and the sausages on a lower shelf for approx 10-15 minutes or until onions crisping.
  9. Place the tin with the sausages in it over a direct heat with a little oil in, until the oil is nicely hot.
  10. Pour batter over the sausages and place back in the oven for 30 minutes or until the batter has risen and is nicely brown.
  11. Whilst the sausages are cooking make the gravy: mix together the Worcestershire sauce, vegetable stock and mustard.
  12. In a pan on medium heat place the roasted onions, 1 tsp of oil and 1 tbsp of flour and mix together, gradually adding the stock mixture. Stirring or whisking constantly until simmering. Allow to simmer for 5 mins.
  13. Serve the toads with the gravy and a vegetable or potato selection of your choice.

For pancake day as I was only making this for the two of us I just made enough toads for two and used the leftover batter for the pancakes!!!!

For dessert we had pancakes with lemon juice, sugar and Maple syrup, it was a good meal and felt rather full afterwards :)
