  • 50g plain flour, sifted
  • 12 mini cocktail sausages
  • 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.

Kids loved it and adults too! Will be having this alot! Served it with gravy from sticky onion sausages and mash. Yum! Doubled up the batter as had 18 sausages.

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.

Thanks for your question. These are much better served straight from the oven. All our recipes that are just as good from frozen are marked with a blue star above the nutritional information.

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