Easy Peasy Popovers
Last weekend we got an urge for fresh bread with breakfast. These popovers did the trick. They are ridiculously easy to make, take only 30 minutes to bake, and are delicious. We will definitely be making these more often...for breakfast or as a dinner roll.
For six popovers:
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 450 F (230 C).
Crack the eggs into a medium-large sized bowl. Use a whisk to *lightly* whisk the eggs. They should be mixed well but not fluffy.
Add the milk and gently whisk again so everything is incorporated.
Add the salt and flour and use a spoon to mix everything together. Do not over mix! Just stir it around until everything is mixed together.
The batter will still have lumps but that is not a problem. You want them!
Pour the batter into muffin cups (greased if you do not have silicone ones like us). We got seven popovers out of this recipe.
Bake for 30 minutes. Do not open the oven to check on them during this time. They will fall in and your popovers will have no pop!
Ours got a little brown since they were high up in the oven. They still tasted great so do not worry if yours start to get a little dark. Whatever you do, do not open the oven!
Enjoy with butter, honey, jam, or anything else that sounds good.
