Pretty, Perky Popovers


Popovers, a long ago treat that seems to be forgotten, sadly so! These delightful crispy yet tender cousin to the dinner roll are terrific with a dinner & even better with tea. That flaky outer crust with a thin layer of tender dough hold a pocket that just demands butter & jam! Surprisingly easy to make your family will think that you slaved all day creating them. Surprise someone with Popovers & watch the ooh & ah over them!
2 Eggs
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 TBS Oil
Prepare your muffin tin by spraying it with cooking oil & I mean spray, be generous. Preheat oven to 475 Degrees! In a bowl break the eggs, pour in the milk, flour & salt. Beat with a whisk until smooth about 1&1/2 minutes. Now whisk in the oil about 30 seconds. Fill 8 muffin wells 1/2 full with the batter. In the empty wells fill those 1/2 full with water. Now bake in the CENTER rack of your oven for 15 minutes. Lower the temperature to 350 Degrees & bake another 22 minutes. Now pierce each Popover with a toothpick to release the steam & bake another 3 minutes or until Popovers a nicely brown! Remove from oven & serve HOT! If you did not spray your pan enough these will stick. If they do, GENTLY run a knife down the sides to remove. If you sprayed them well, they POP right out! Serve with lots of butter, jam or honey! THESE ARE LOVELY!
