Large toad in the hole!

I've been making toad in the hole as a weekend staple (meat or veggie) with various recipes which all seem to serve 4 max, which is a squeeze with 3dcs (1 is young toddler) I'd like to make a more generous
one and as I haven't had a really good recipe for the batter, (yesterday was bbc good food) there's no point just doubling a recipe I have.
any ideas? thanks

I use a big tin and Delias yorkshire pubdding recipe-3oz plain flour. one egg , 5 floz s/s milk I double this anduse either a mix of milk and water or all water
I have made Nigella how to eat Yorkshiree recipe and it is good but uses 4 eggs which seems a bit extravagant
Delias Toad in hole recipe is in How to Cook and has nice onion gravy

Equal amounts of plain flour, milk, eggs. I use a measuring cup, one cup of each, whisk like crazy - perfect every time.


Except when I forget to turn the oven temp up....... Whoops!

i usually just put in more sausages and a few onions.....I used to double the batter quantities and found that it just sits and blobs.

Nigel Slater's recipe

He has pancetta in there, but i sometime put in bits of ham or bacon with the onions....make sure they are really nicely soft, then brown the sausages, throw the heat right up so the batter sizzles when you pour it in and into the oven

I do this one www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1572643/sams-toad-in-the-hole

There are quite a few on the bbc good food site, think this one has a bit more egg than Delia? This seems to make a lot of batter and can accommodate a couple of extra sausages so does us fine. I cook on a slightly lower temp than instructed and use the non-fan setting in the oven as this gives the best rise and no singeing, but my oven is a bit temperamental.

I use Jamie's ministry of food one tried a few bbc ones too. I cook mine in a muffin tin, so do around 8 with one quantity. I've doubled it and served more with no problem.

I've just done Delia's. I double it as it's never very much but it's quite heavy, not nice and light.

The Nigel Slater recipe is great and I quite often double the recipe but I've found its best to use two tins rather combine it all in one as it's cooks best that way!

I didn't think of using two tins <smacks forehead> mind you we have limited oven shelves but that's another problem entirely wink

I use a Jamie Oliver recipe, double it up and use two foil disposal baking tins.

Delia's one is perfect IME - foolproof and the gravy is amazing. (Actually I may just be blinded by the gravy as it is so good blush
