Sausage Rolls

Excellent video and a recipe I can recommend wholeheartedly. It's years since I've made these. They have always been a favourite of the family. My mother-in-law was always asked to make them for any family gathering. I think I will make a double batch and put them in the freezer for a couple of gatherings I have after Christmas. I think I'm probably the only one in the family who prefers them cold.

Christmas Sausage Rolls

I notice that the video recipe for the Christmas Sausage rolls uses a lesser ratio of fat to flour than in the Christmas Book, which says
: 225g plain flour to 175g butter.

Pro Rata it would be near to 150/155g of fat to 120g of plain flour.

Has this been a concious effort by Delia to cut down on the consumption of fat ? Especially over the Christmas period ?

Yummy, have you got it the wrong way round? It should be more flour than fat. Have to say my pastry is more like half fat to flour.

By the way, butter has now been re-classified as good!! In moderation.

Have you watched the video WC ?? it says 110g flour to 75g of butter, the book says 225g of flour and 175g of butter.

Cookery School Sausage Rolls

Hello Yummy and Welshcookie,

It’s all down to the conversion chart we use really.

The new recipe is half the original recipe.

The original is 8oz flour to 6oz butter (converted to 225g flour, 175g butter).

The new recipe developed for the cookery school is 4oz flour to 3oz butter (converted to 110g flour, 75g butter).

Your right in our metric world we could be more precise and say 112g flour and 87g butter but generally (although sometimes for example it makes more sense to use a 100g packet of something rather than say 110g) we stick to measurements that will convert back to imperial (using Delia's conversion chart) for anyone who still prefers it. Either way both the original and the new version of the recipe have been tested many times.

I hope this clears up any confusion,

Best wishes

Lindsey

I agree, made them yesterday and , of course had to test them !! used the recipe from the video.

Hubby says he still likes my original recipe with added mustard and cheese to the pastry though :)
