Black Pudding Toad in the Hole with bacon crumb and apple puree

⁣Black Pudding Toad in the Hole with bacon crumb
and apple puree


  • ⁣100g Plain Flour
  • 100g Full Fat Milk
  • 100g Free Range Eggs
  • 200g Black Pudding, Cubed
  • 3 Bramley Apples
  • 80g White Sugar
  • 50ml oil for brushing
  • To decorate:
  • Frizzy Salad
  • Apple Slices
  • Red wine Jus
  • Bacon Crumb


⁣Start by making the green apple puree, peel the apples and set aside the skin. Remove the core and roughly chop the apple, place in a heavy based pan with 100ml of water and the sugar, cook until soft. Place the apple mixture into a blender and puree the apple until smooth then add the apple peels and blend for a second time.Pass through a fine sieve and leave too cool. To make the Yorkshire batter whisk the milk and flour in a large bowl until smooth then add the eggs. Leave to rest for a few hours, this will help the mixture rise evenly. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Brush 6 darioles with oil, place the black pudding evenly between the moulds, a little less than halfway, pour the batter just about covering the black pudding. Cook in the pre-heated oven until golden and crisp about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the mould and leave to cool slightly. Assemble the plate and decorate with the jus, bacon and apple salad.
