Popovers

Popovers — you’ll need a little more than an hour, and if you don’t have a popover tray, a muffin tray will do

  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees, and grease the pan.

Beat the eggs slightly and add the remaining ingredients — LET SIT FOR 15 MINUTES.  This matters. I don’t know why, but it does.

Fill the cups 3/4 fill (this recipe will make 6 popovers or about 12 muffin-sized popovers)

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 325 degrees.

Bake another 25-30 minutes, or until golden-brown.

Smile at the miraculous pop.  Or conversely, remark at how your pancake-flavored disks sure are neat.

Serve with butter and jam.
