MINI POPOVERS

Let me do a quick confession: I ate the entire thing, all 12 mini popovers, in the course of one day. Yes, it was a day of binge eating, and while I felt a bit guilty and gluttonous, but I was ready to do it again. These mini popovers are heavenly clouds that I would not ever turn away, even if I were to give up carbs. The recipe is from a small booklet that came with a Pampered Chef product.

GATHER:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into 12 even pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

MAKE:

  1. Oil or spray popover pan. Preheat oven to 400 and set rack in the middle of oven. Preheat popover pan in oven about 2 minutes. Blend flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter until mixture is consistency of heavy cream, about 1 to 2 minutes. Batter should be used at room temperature.
  2. Place 1 small piece of butter in each cup and place back in preheated oven until butter is bubbly, 1 minute. Fill each cup half full with batter and bake 20 minutes. Reduce temperature to 300 and continue baking 20 minutes. 
  3. Serve immediately, popovers are best right from the oven.
