  • 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.

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.

Plain flour? Is that right? Because against my better judgment that's what I used and my Yorkshires were very flat and cakey and not at all like my usual results.

My 3 year old daughter loved making this for our dinner last night. She did it all her self mixed the batter poured it into the muffin tray and put a sausage in every one. She can defiantly make it again for us.
