Pop on over for a popover

Actually, don’t pop over for a popover- we ate them all.

I’d never seen a popover before this weekend, but they looked so awesome that I couldn’t resist making a batch.

I made them as a finish to our little fourth of july cookout at Charlotte’s house. She was nice enough to grab her camera and get a couple of pictures.

If you’ve never had a popover, they taste like little french toasts. They are sort of dense and airy at the same time.

I’d also like to point out that they have a grand total of 5 ingredients, and that includes the butter for the pan. They are insanely easy.

Popovers
3 eggs
1 c milk
1 c All Purpose Flour
1/4 csugar
2-3 Tbsp Butter

Heat the oven to 375.

Divide the butter into a 12 cup muffin pan (they make popover pan, but my guess is that if you own one, you don’t need this recipe). Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes.

While the pan is heating, beat the eggs, milk, and sugar together, and then add the flour and whisk.

Remove the pan from the over (the butter will be golden brown) and fill the muffin tin evenly with the batter.

Bake for 5 minutes, and then lower the temperature to 350 and bake for 25 more.

They will start to deflate just a bit when you pull them out, but that’s okay, they’ll still look awesome.

I topped them with homemade whipped cream, raspberry sauce, and blueberries.

I bet they’d look good with savory toppings, too… maybe some chicken salad?
