Perfect popovers

>> Sunday, January 10, 2010

For breakfast this morninng I baked a tray full of popovers to warm the soul on this continued chilly weekend. Popovers are so comforting when you break into them and all that warm, steamy goodness escapes right before your eyes.

All you need to make popovers is:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing tin
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
This is for a basic popover. I added in white and brown sugar, sage, cinnamon and vanilla to the mixture for a sweet popover.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a popover tin.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and additional spices. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Pour over flour mixture, and fold until just blended.

Fill the popover cups two-thirds to three-quarters full. Transfer tin to oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees, and bake until well browned and crusty, about 20 minutes.

Remove popovers from the oven, and unmold onto a rack. Puncture the sides with a sharp knife to let steam escape, brush the tops of the popovers with honey and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Wow, these look great! Do I need a popover tin, or would a muffin tin work just as well?

I used a large muffin tin and the recipe made 5. A popover tin may have worked better but these turned out delicious.
