  • 200g tub half-fat crème fraîche
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Pour the oil into a baking dish, about 20 x 30cm, and put in the oven for 10 mins to heat up.

  2. While the oil heats, put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Beat together the milk and eggs, and pour into the well gradually, whisking all the time, until a batter is formed. Season and stir in the sage.

  3. Remove the dish from the oven, carefully pour in the batter and top with the thick slices of mushroom. Return to the oven for 15-20 mins until the batter is golden and puffy, and the mushrooms are cooked.

  4. While the dish is in the oven, mix the crème fraîche, garlic and mustard together in a small pan. Heat gently over a very low heat so it doesn’t split, season and serve on the side.

Did you mean 'toadstool-in -the- hole'? Would have been a better name. We found this rather boring tasting, sorry! Keep the sausages

Made this for tea,used the recommended size dish and did not change any measurements. Batter horrible , heavy. Needs a thinner batter.
