I have a memory of popovers from when I was really young. They obviously didn't make a regular appearance at meals because I remember them being special. Like for company or something.
I hadn't had a popover since. Until now.
I've seen recipes now and then around the internet and always think, 'I need to make those!" But never do.
I found this recipe and was so excited to make them. I'm not much of a baker so I had my doubts. I thought for sure they wouldn't resemble the popovers that I remembered at all. Boy was I wrong! These came out perfect! Crunchy on the outside and soft and hollow on the inside. I so should have gotten a picture of them from the inside. I was so proud of them!
We all loved the popovers but I specifically had my son Jacob in mind when I made them. He's all about bread. It seems like all he eats is bread. As expected, he loved them and at most of them.
These will be making a regular appearance on my menus!
Recipe from NYCity Eats
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat the oven to 450.
Have all ingredients at room temp. Butter deep muffin tin or popover pan and set aside.
Beat milk, butter, flour & salt just until smooth. Add eggs 1 at a time without over beating. Pour batter in pan filling cups only 3/4 full, and place in oven immediately.
Bake at 450 for 15-17 minutes. Lower temperature to 350 without opening door. Bake about 20 minutes longer or until popovers are golden brown & you can remove them from the pan without the outside walls collapsing.
