Toad in the Hole

I've just got back from England where I've been staying with my Mum for 4 weeks. While I was away I didn't spend much time on the computer, but I've got a few food photos on my camera to share!

My sister Sarah made Toad in the Hole for us while we were in England.

Our Nannie (grandmother) used to make this for us when we were children, using sausage meat instead of sausages. She called it Sausage in Batter and we always used to eat it with baked beans and mashed potatoes - so we decided to have baked beans with ours too.

It was delicious! For the batter, Sarah uses a recipe from a 1930s Be-Ro (brand of flour) recipe book - the page for the Yorkshire Pudding recipe is below...

How wonderful! The famous Toad in the Hole! I've never tried it but have been intrigued with it ever since I first heard of it :)

Well that is the most spectacular looking Toad in the Hole I have ever seen! How fabulous, and so great that you could enjoy it as you did as a child:)

That looks wonderful. And IMHO should be eaten with baked beans. Any more lovely stories to tell us of your travels please?

how intriguing, I've heard of this dish, but never seen it cooked. I absolutely love the old cook book. I just adore them. Hopefully I can get a nice big old cook book collection of my own.

By the way, love the little girls haircut!

And precisely what is Sarah doing with a recipe for batter which originated in the meseolithic period?
