  • Total time: 25-30 minutes
  • Makes: 12


250g plain flour
Pinch of salt
½ tsp fresh thyme, leaves only
½ tsp crushed deep-fried sage leaves (about 4 large)
300ml whole milk
4 medium eggs
6 tbsp goose fat or vegetable oil 


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Place the flour, salt and herbs in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Gradually whisk in the milk and eggs to form a smooth batter.

Heat the fat in the oven for 15-20 minutes until really hot then pour in the batter (fill the holes a third to half full or tip it all in if using a roasting tin) and return to the oven.
