|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
For the batter
75g plain flour
For the gravy:
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsps oil
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp mustard
425ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp plain flour
|Toad in the Hole|
- Preheat oven to Gas Mark 7 or 220C.
- Make the batter, sieve the flour into a bowl. Put a dip in the flour and break an egg into it.
- Mix the milk and water together in a jug.
- Whisk the egg and flour slowly adding the the water/milk mixture slowly. Whisk until smooth.
- Slice the onions and mix with sugar 2 tsps of oil.
- Spread out on a baking tray.
- Place the sausages in a roasting tin (or large pudding tins).
- 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.
- Place the tin with the sausages in it over a direct heat with a little oil in, until the oil is nicely hot.
- Pour batter over the sausages and place back in the oven for 30 minutes or until the batter has risen and is nicely brown.
- Whilst the sausages are cooking make the gravy: mix together the Worcestershire sauce, vegetable stock and mustard.
- 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.
- 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 :)
