  1. Tip the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour the beaten egg into it, with a splash of milk. Draw in the flour with a whisk, gradually adding the remaining milk.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and grease a 15cm x 25cm ovenproof baking dish with oil. Arrange the onion, apple and sausages in the baking dish and season to taste. Cook for about 10 mins, until the onion and apple soften. Pour over the batter and cook for a further 30-40 mins. The batter should be well risen and golden. Serve with gravy and mashed potato.

i cannot get the batter to cook in the middle with this receipe, it was all soggy even after being ion the oven 15mins longer than suggested. anyone else had this problem>? :-(

Totally agree. So disappointing that the batter was so soggy. The recipe just seems to have way too much liquid. I just couldn't eat it and had to take the sausages out and do something else with them. Seems such a waste, maybe I should have left it in the oven for another half an hour but you hope that they get a recipe right.

gorgeous recipe this! i added some thyme to the batter mix along with a tsp of mustard powder. i also flavoured the oil with half a clove of garlic. you can just taste the garlic without it being too over powering. my spanish friends love it over here!

Mmmmm. Highly recommended with course grain mustard and garlic mash. So so quick and easy - a good sunday meal for when you have guests.

very easy to make, and the boys liked the look of it! We would'nt put the apple in again, and maybe try it without the onions, as we too had a soggy bottom! Tasted really nice though.

Another dish from good food that always gets eaten. I plan around 4-5 meals a week and the others are pot luck from whatever ingredients are in the fridge. This dish often pops into my head on such occasions. So simple to make and my 16 year old daughter has now learned to make it on her own. Great for a large family meal I have cooked this with 24 sausages before! I think the quantities shown are a little mean there are 5 of us (inc a 3 year old) and they would fight if I only did 6 sausages. I also find the batter is too hard and crispy so I double the recipe amount and find its moist in the middle and crispy on the outside. Mmmmm
