Popovers





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.

Until now.


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!




Popovers
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.

  2. I've never had popovers before, but I'd love to try them. It would be a nice change of pace from the regular rolls and biscuits I make.

  3. YUM, they turned out great! I made them once a very long time ago before I was really much of a cook and was surprised they turned out for me too. I love easy recipes! I really want to open one of your sup and fill it with chicken salad.

  6. These look delicious! I don't believe I've ever had a popover before, but I imagine they're quite tasty. This recipe looks simple enough for a weeknight dinner too--a bonus in my book. Great SRC choice!

  20. ZOMG! I love these so much! I always have one or two on my cheat days. No one can eat healthy organic meals all the time :) They taste best with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Super delicious!
