Basic recipe here: http://home.insightbb.com/~bonnett/popover/popover_recipe.htm
Popovers rise by steam, and it's hard to get them right. If you must follow just one tip, make it this one: MAKE SURE THE INGREDIENTS ARE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. Warm ingredients make for much better rising.
- 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Mix together the flour and the salt in a LARGE bowl.
Whisk together the eggs and milk in a SMALL bowl.
Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring the batter until just mixed. (Do not overbeat.)
Preheat a popover pan just until hot. Brush the cups with melted butter and fill them half full of batter.
Bake for 20 minutes at 450°F. Turn the heat down to 375°F and bake for an additional 20 minutes until they are a crispy golden brown.
Makes 6 popovers. Serve immediately.
