So easy and so delicious Popovers

A few months ago, my great aunt was cleaning out her kitchen, and says that i simply "must" take this popover pan, because my husband would absolutely love to eat them. I was intrigued, and most of family shocked, that in my many many years of baking and pastry making i had never come across this fabulous thing called a 'popover'. Apparently it is a New England staple, typically served with potroast.

The pan is actually what does all the work - the shape forces up air through the batter and creates a puff in the middle.

Ingredients: 2 Eggs, 1 cup Flour, 1 cup Milk, 1/2 Tsp Salt

  • Preheat oven to 450 F; Grease pan thoroughly
  • Beat eggs thoroughly, add in flour, milk and salt, being careful not to over beat
  • Fill cups 1/2 way and put in oven for 20 min.
  • Decrease oven temp to 350 F and bake for another 20 min.

Serve with hearty soups and stews, as your dinner rolls at dinner or my favorite: a yummy breakfast. You can add some spices into the batter for a little variation - herbs de provence are really yummy for savory or cinnamon is great for sweet. Also, you can top with powdered sugar, honey, almonds once they come out of the oven (make sure its not too heavy though!)

Can be stored up to a week; cool off and place in zip top bag. After you taste these, you will never want to buy store bought rolls again!
