Finally! I love Popovers and I am always referencing them… so… ta da! Here they are. I stuck to my fail safe version, nothing fancy. The key to any Popover is making sure that the eggs and the milk are at room temperature. Helps keep them all light and fluffy, the way they are meant to be!
We were having grilled BBQ chicken and a green apple, blackberry and spinach salad for dinner. I felt that the lack of carbs would leave a huge hole on my table. Normally I wouldn’t care, but it is just that kind of week ;).
I wanted to eat bread without feeling like I was really “eating bread”. How perfect are Popovers for that feeling?! They are literally hollow. So, I whipped up some cinnamon sugar butter and that was that. Honestly, the cinnamon sugar butter complimented the complex flavors of the BBQ chicken. Really, you ought to try it!
So, you will need…
- 1 C. All purpose Flour
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 2 Large Eggs, at room temperature
- 1 Tbsp Butter, melted
- 1 1/4 C. Whole Milk, room temperature
Here was my process…
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, and prepare popover pan or muffin pan. Lightly grease the sides and dust with flour.
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt.
- In another medium bowl whisk together, the eggs, butter and milk until well blended.
- Pour the egg mixture into the dry mixture and beat with a wooden spoon just until all ingredients are well incorporated.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan, filling each tin half way full, and bake at 425 degrees F. for 30 minutes.
- At 30 minutes, reduce heat to 375 degrees F and bake for another 15-20 minutes until tops are a rich golden brown.
- Remove from oven, pierce the side of each popover to allow the steam to escape.
- Serve as quickly as possible!
For the cinnamon sugar butter, just let butter reach room temperature and hen add a dash or two of cinnamon and a dash or two of sugar. mix until well blended. I usually take jam or honey with my popovers, but this felt like a fun thing to do. I love eating fun food!
So, next time it is time for a cook out at your house and you want to keep things “light”, take out that popover pan and give it a whirl. You just can’t go wrong!
