Unfortunetly I am bias as I submitted the recipie. However I felt that I must defend myself as this being an original english recipie. My mother used to say that you "had to beat a lot of love into it" so I'm afraid those lumps only go away with a good beating....must be a strong Yorkshire arm that is needed or an electric whisk!!! It is also best left to stand for 10 minutes after beating. As for flavour it is best served with a rich onion gravy....a very english taste! And if you can get Linconshire Sausages or herby sausages even better. Good luck and enjoy.

I used an 8x8 inch pan, and added sauteed onions and a pinch of thyme.I suppose you could use any other herb. It really helped to boost the flavor. Next time I think I'll try a different sausage. Overall, a great easy basic recipe. Thanks! Larry

This recipe got a thumbs-up from my British boyfriend - I used veggie sausage and added sage to the batter, and it turned out well. However, I have two constructive criticisms. Number one - the pan size was too large for the scant amount of batter. Using a smaller pan makes it more likely the batter will puff up with higher volume. Secondly, I would reverse the order of the ingredients, adding flour to the already-beaten liquid ingredients. I had a hard time getting the lumps out of the batter when adding eggs to flour.

Excellent. My missus got jealous that I could make this dish better than her. Didn't tell her I found the recipe here mind you.

Recently returned from a trip to London. I loved this dish while I was there. This is a great recipe with a few modifications. First use a bigger casserole dish, maybe 9x13 so it is thoroughly cooked. Second, pick up a packet of brown gravy to pour over the top. A++ Definitely a new family favorite. Super quick prep time. I also used my mixer on the batter.

This recipe was OK. It's a little bland. Maybe more salt and pepper or some other type of spices would liven it up. I might make it agin.

Very easy to prepare and was very tasty and a very "stick to your ribs" meal. However, after reading the other reviews prior to making it..I did add some garlic powder to the batter for a little more flavour. Don't forget to not open the oven door until puffy and golden. Enjoy!
