Servings 6


  • 75 g plain flour
  • 140 ml milk
  • 1 eggs
  • 6 Cumberland sausages
  • 100 ml lard or sunflower oil
  • Salt & Pepper

To serve ;

  • 200 ml Red wine and Onion gravy
  • 4 tbsp Fresh Herbs


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  • Sift the flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt. Break the egg into the bowl. Whisk in the milk into a smooth batter. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
  • In the meantime, over medium heat, sauté the sausages in a ovenproof pan. Colour on all sides for 4-6 minutes until browned.
  • Add the extra oil or fat to the pan and heat it up until piping hot. This will help rise the batter like a Yorkshire pudding.
  • Heat the oil for 2 minutes or until piping hot. Carefully pour in the batter. Transfer the pan in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and just firm.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately with a red wine onion gravy.
