Popovers are delicious and super simple. Hallow on the inside but can be modified to your taste! My favorite? Topping them with some strawberries and strawberry jam.. yumm.. When the steam falls out into the air - you want to just devour them - willing to burn your whole mouth for a bite! Ingredients: - 1 cup (8 ounces) whole or 2% milk - 2 large eggs - 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and divided - 1 cup (5 ounces) all-purpose flour - 1/4 teaspoon salt Directions: 1) In a food process or blender, or with a whisk and a bowl, blend the milk, eggs, and one tablespoon melted butter until completely combined. Add the flour and the salt. Blend until frothy and bubbly. 2) Heat the Oven: Heat the oven to 450°F. Let the popover batter rest while the oven heats. This gives the flour time to absorb the liquid and gives the popovers a better texture. 3) Pour the Batter into the Pans: Put the popover tin or muffin pan in the oven for 2 minutes to warm. Remove from the oven and divide the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter between the cups. Whiz (or whisk) the batter one more time to froth it up again and then fill each cup halfway. 4) Bake the Popovers for 15 Minutes: Place the pan back into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking (this causes the popovers to deflate). 5) Reduce the Heat and Continue Baking: Still without opening the oven, reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for another 15 minutes. Now you can open the oven door and check the popovers. Finished popovers will be golden-brown, feel dry to the touch, and sound hollow when tapped. 6) Prick with a Knife, Cool, and Eat!: Turn the popovers out onto a drying rack. Pierce the bottoms with a knife to allow steam to escape. Cool just enough so they can be handled and then eat immediately. 7) Enjoy!
