Our Top 3 Winter Warmer AGA Recipes

There’s nothing like the scent of fresh home-baked food wafting out of an AGA and across your home to warm you through once the weather starts to turn. With so many occasions to cook for in autumn, it’s an excellent opportunity to try out some new recipes in your AGA.

Here are 3 of our favourite winter warming AGA recipes.

Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes may be the ultimate autumnal food, but do you know how to cook them in your AGA? It may surprise you, but the baking oven is not the way to go. Here’s how we get perfect baked potatoes.

  1. Clean and scrub your potato.
  2. Rub olive oil into the skin for a crispy finish.
  3. Put is directly on the grid on the 3rd shelf in your roasting oven.
  4. Leave for 1 ¼ - 1 ½ hours (it’s wise to set an alarm, so you don’t forget about it!).

You get perfect fluffy potato with a crispy skin every time. It’s all ready to be loaded up with butter and cheese. These are the ideal food for eating after you’ve been out watching the bonfire.

Catherine Wheel Toad in The Hole

This version of toad in the hole looks tremendous and elevates this classic bonfire night dish into something special.

Ingredients

  • Eight linked chipolatas
  • 100g plain flour
  • Salt
  • Three eggs
  • 225ml milk

Method

  1. Mix up the flour, eggs and milk for the batter and put aside, so the bubbles settle out.
  2. Squeeze all the sausage meat together, so you have one large sausage, rather than eight separate ones.
  3. Coil the sausage around your roasting pan in a pinwheel.
  4. Put the pan in your roasting oven on the second shelf, for 10 minutes.
  5. Pour the batter over the sausages and cook until the batter is risen, crisp, and golden brown. This should take around 25 minutes.

This goes great with some mashed potatoes and a lovely rich onion gravy.

Spiced Latte Biscuits

These yummy spiced biscuits are a lovely warming treat and go perfectly with a pumpkin spice latte. You can cut them into shapes to suit your mood as the dough holds its shape well when cooked.

Ingredients

  • 75g caster sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1-2 tbsp strong coffee
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger

Method

  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Mix in the rest of the dry ingredients.
  3. Gradually add the milk and coffee until you get a pliable dough with the flavour you want.
  4. Knead the dough for 2-3mins, then roll and shape it.
  5. Put the biscuits on a lined baking sheet.
  6. Put the tray on the fourth shelf in your baking oven for 15 - 20 minutes. The biscuits will still be soft to the touch when done.

Alternatively, put the tray on the fourth set of runners in the roasting oven with the cold shelf on the second set of runners. Cook for 15 - 20 minutes.

These yummy biscuits will crisp up as they cool. These biscuits are really lovely when iced.
