I added the batter to browned sausages, so hot fat, but it is looking quite flat in the oven. What am I doing wrong?

Is your oven turned up?

I assumed you've done something along these lines

• 285ml milk
• 115g plain flour
• a pinch of salt
• 3 eggs

I do mine by eye but this is the proper measurements courtsey of Jamie O wink

If you've done it correctly just leave it turn the oven to 220. for about 25 mins.

If you have a glass oven door check through the glass to see if it's rising after about 15 minutes. If it's not there isn't alot you can do.

Sometimes mine are a bit hit and miss.

I did mine on 140 - is stodgy. Shall try a hotter oven next time. I did try not to peek but when it was clear it had gone wrong I did open the door, couldn't resist.

140 is way way too low wondering.

I know! I have tried a hot oven and it's come out like a biscuit before. This one was very doughy (inedible) in the middle, but the children wolfed the crispy edges down. So not a total disaster.

I shall try again, will not be beaten. Thanks for the tips!
