Popovers

8 Sep

Wet batter gets poured into a deep cup.

A super hot oven sets the rising crust.

Steam trapped inside creates a big empty pocket.

A crispy vessel is ready to be filled with goodness.

Waiting 40 minutes for these to bake is the only difficult part of this recipe…

 

Basic Popovers – from Food Network

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1 teaspoon room temperature for pan
  • 4 3/4 ounces all purpose flour, approximately 1 cup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk, room temperature

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a 6-cup popover pan with the 1 teaspoon of butter.

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process for 30 seconds. Divide the batter evenly between the cups of the popover pan, each should be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes. Remove the popovers to a cooling rack and pierce each in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape. Serve warm with fruit preserves.
