Popovers

These are easy! They are similar to little Yorkshire puddings but not as good because we didn't have the beef broth.



Popovers = a quick bread solution. I had been wanting to try these for quite some time and as I hadn’t the time to make a loaf of bread, this was a good solution. I don’t have a popover pan but truth is….you can adapt by using a large size muffin pan. Easy and hardly any hands on time so you are free to work on dinner or read a chapter in your book, play with your kids or pets…..

Five simple ingredients which you probably have in your kitchen now.

2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon melted butter

I used my stand mixer and so followed directions from my KitchenAid cookbook. Place all ingredients into mixer bowl. Mix all ingredients for 15 seconds on speed 4 using the wire whisk attachment. Scrape bowl after the 15 seconds. Now mix again, speed 4, for another 15 seconds.

Fill 6 or 8 heavily greased and flour popover molds, or ramekins or a large muffin pan half full of batter. I used my large muffin pan. Place pan in cold oven and set for 450 F. Bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 F and bake another 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately.



These would be great with jam or butter once they are fresh out of the oven. I will certainly make them again.

This little one was from batter left over, poured into a tiny ramekin...it was as good as the others.



So next up I have a few things in the works. I have the roundup for Food 'n Flix feature to post, an exciting experience at Talon Training Group where Doug and I had a great time and more recipes from my Mediterranean cookbook.

Hope you are well!!

these do look good - I do not have a popover pan either, one more pan I wish I had but I know I would only use it a few times, much like my many other baking pans....

Drick, I know what you mean. There are so many cooking and baking toys but they are aimed at single use such as a popover pan, Madeline pan, etc.

These are going to be repeats though. And made in the big muffin pan.

Interesting week, weather-wise.  On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
