Toad in the Hole

It was a lovely surprise to arrive home from holiday last week and find a pack of Isabel's Yorkshire Pudding Mix waiting for us in the post.  We had been lucky enough to test some of the mix before it had been finally packaged and prepared for sale.  So, we decided that a good dish to use it in would be Toad in the Hole. 
With this in mind, we bought some Gluten Free sausages from the Good Little Company and were ready to make the most of the oven space when we were baking Banana Bread on Friday.
The ingredients in Isabel's Yorkshire Pudding Mix are naturally gluten free...
.... and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
So, we got 2 eggs and 320ml of milk and started to prepare the batter.
We whisked the eggs into the milk.

Then added the milk/egg mix to the flour and whisked it together.
Then, the batter was divided between two baking trays which had been placed in the pre-heated oven.  Instead of the oil suggested on the packet, we used a little beef dripping in the bottom of each tray.
One tray had just batter added and the other had some pre-cooked sausages added to the mix.  Both trays were then placed in the pre-heated oven (180ÂșC fan) and cooked for 25 minutes.

After 25 minutes in the oven, this was the result.  Sous Chef J was most impressed with the 'plain' Yorkshire pudding as it had turned into a mountainous pud.
The Toad in the Hole was cooked well throughout although the sausages were rather 'well done'!
Sous Chef J didn't complain though, and his plate of tasty mouthfuls was demolished in record time.
Thanks, once more, to Isabel for yet another lovely Gluten Free mix that makes cooking simple and tasty.
