    Serves: 4 

    • 8 pork sausages
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 cup (250ml) milk
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Pour the oil into the bottom of a baking dish, and arrange the sausages on top in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
    3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add the flour, make a well in the centre and add the eggs and half the milk. Whisk together until smooth. Gradually mix in the remaining milk until the batter is smooth. Season well with salt and pepper.
    4. Remove the sausages from the oven and ladle the batter over them until the sausages are 3/4 covered.
    5. Return to the oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the centre is risen and browned. Don't worry if the underside seems slightly soft, as this is normal.

    Used different ingredients. THIS WAS SO SIMPLE AND DELICIOUS! I made my version of the recipe due to what was on hand. So I'm not sure it was quite authentic, but still yummy nonetheless. Anyway, I used smoked sausage(cut into slices). I also added some cooked onion to the sausage and oil. To the pudding mixture I added some garlic powder along with the salt/pepper. Was crusty and delicious when done ~ I served this with a simple mustard(my family not keen on the onion gravy). Was very simple and a casual meal keeper. Thanks so much!!!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    A great dish, I know from past experience that this is always best baked in a metal dish than in ceramic.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Very good very easy recipe, when scaling to 6 servings, add a bit of extra milk, perhaps 1/2 cup at the most.  -  29 Sep 2008
