  • 50g plain flour, sifted
  • 12 mini cocktail sausage
  • tomato ketchup, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Put a generous half-teaspoonful of sunflower oil in the bottom of each cup of a deep 12-hole mini muffin pan set on a baking tray.

  2. Pour the milk into a jug, add the egg, flour and a pinch of salt and whisk everything together with a hand blender or wire whisk until a smooth batter forms.

  3. Put the muffin pan in the oven for a minute or so until the oil is very hot. Carefully remove from the oven and quickly fill the cups just under two-thirds full (this may not seem enough batter, but they puff up in the oven). Drop a sausage into each cup and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown, well risen and crisp. Serve with ketchup.

great quick meal but Rashani G is dead right the mixture will only make 8 not 12, I last posted a comment 12 Sept 2008 been making them ever since, 130ml of milk and 75g of flour is about right for making 12 though!

Great idea - I struggle to get my toad in the hole to rise in a big pan, but theses are easy peasy. Kids liked them.

Very tasty- will be making again. Only enough batter to make six though.

So can you use frozen cocktail sausages or do they have to be fresh? Iwant to make these for dinner :-)

I made this for dinner and it was awesome! I doubled the ingredients and that was a good amount for 2 very hungry adults and one child. I used my new silicone muffin tray, so they didn't stick at all - very impressive. Next time I'm going to try some with no oil to make them less greasy. Though that might detract from their deliciousness! I used normal chunky sausages, but chopped them into chunks - worked well.

haven't used this particular recipe but if your kids are dairy intolerant replace the milk with rice milk (oatly milk is too thick).

These were so easy to make I couldn't believe it. My work colleagues who are very much over 5 enjoyed them tremendously.
I did however find that I had to use twice the batter than the recipe suggested for a batch of 12 so bear that in mind if you would like them a bit more substantial.
Great recipe overall.

After reading the comments I doubled the quantity of Yorkshire batter. Think in future I'll try 1 1/2 times the recipe quantities as my Yorkies came out huge with a weeny lil sausage inside! That said they looked yummy and my little one loved them. Super quick and easy to make too.

made these with the grandchildren for a saturday supper and they were delicious. I used ready cooked cocktail sausages and they were fine. I usually have a problem with sticking yorkshires but these all came out perfectly.

Could I use ready cooked cocktail sausages?

Yummy!! I made these for a party with some pease pudding to serve and they dissappeared very quickly!! I did some with veggies sausages too. I could only get six toads out of the quantities given though and I have made them several times now.

Absolutley amazing, they didnt stick to the tin and went down a treat, have made them several times now and always perfect!!! Must try!!!

Next time, when I am making it, I will use the given quantity to make 6 cups, and also will sprinkle a little grated cheese on top.

Nice & crispy, but the batter didn't fill 12 cups, it just filled 8. Other than that, it was delicious, my 2 year old daughter and my 12 year old son enjoyed it very well. Thank you!

Children loved them. I served with gravy and mashed potato

My 16 month old and my 4 year old love these (and so do I!) :-)

Kids loved them, nice quick and easy mid week food. :)

Made this for 2 fussy children with poor appetites and got 2 clean plates!
Substituted the muffin tray for traditional yorkshire pudding tins and popped 3 sausages in each. Makes 4-5. Brill.

Would these be ok to serve cold on a buffet table?
