Can anyone help me?
I just made the batter mix for toad in the hole My recipe was 1/2 pint of milk, 2 eggs and 4 oz plain flour.. but when i come to eat it, it doesnt taste that nice..more like PLAIN. where did i go rong?
When I make toad in the hole I add a little salt and a good sprinkle of pepper, some Lea & Perrins and a chopped onion. This makes it tasty.
