two birds with one popover....

Thank you for all the nice comments yesterday. I am so glad that you like my dribble... :- )

If I could I would make enough popovers to send you all one in the mail. Of course that can't happen, so I will show you a photo of mine and give you the recipe.

Quick Popovers -

• 2 Tbs. butter, melted
• 2 eggs
• 1 cup milk
• 1 cup flour
• 1/4 tsp. salt
• Extra butter, jam, or maple syrup for toppings

Preheat oven to 375°F.
Step 1: Brush the inside of 12 muffin cups with melted butter.
Step 2: Break eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add milk and beat well. Add flour and salt; whisk in until well blended. Pour batter into each muffin cup; cups should be about half to two-thirds full.
Step 3: Bake 30 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and prick with a fork to let steam escape. Spread with butter or jam or dip in a little bit of maple syrup. You can also fill with pudding and dust with powered sugar or drizzle with chocolate. Fill with scrambled eggs and chopped bacon for a quick breakfast treat.

These are so easy that kids can make them... today at my house they did!!
I watch two kids after school for about an hour. I had the oven preheated and all the ingredients ready to go. One of them prepped the muffin pan and the other mixed the batter. Then they each poured 6 muffins. They each ate one and I sent four home with them for dessert.

The best part? They had to be very quiet with no running or jumping or screaming...nice. I'd say that was killing two birds with one popover.....


PS I found this recipe yesterday on a blog I read. Unfortunately I didn't note the name of the blog and I can't find it. If you know where the recipe was please email me so I can give proper credit.

Talking about dribble, I think I'm nearly dribbling all over the keyboard.
We have an english version of this recipe to have with Roast Beef and gravy called yorkshire puddings so I haven't had a sweet version. The cooking is a little different in that we preheat the muffin tin with the fat in first.
