I am a fiend for Popovers and my husband who is my weekend Chef/Slave makes super gourmet breakfasts for me on the weekends.
He finally broke down and purchased a Popover Pan, what a difference it makes, they are huge and really puff up. We used to use a cupcake pan, but it is worth the money to get a Popover Pan even though we don't normally buy single use kitchen tools!
3 tablespoons melted butter, divided (hubby used melted Coconut Oil)
1 cup milk, warmed for 30 seconds in the microwave (should be lukewarm to warm)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
(We like to fill them with fresh Strawberries or Homemade Strawberry jam!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Using a pastry brush, coat 8 muffin cups with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter (we used melted Coconut Oil) and put the tin in the oven for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the eggs in a blender until light yellow. (we just used a bowl and whipped them very well)
Add the warmed milk and blend. Add the flour, salt and remaining melted butter (we used Coconut Oil) and blend until smooth.
Pour the batter into the warmed muffin tin and return it to the oven to bake until golden, about 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
Note: I found 35 minutes was too long and they were a little dark, next time we will do 30 minutes.
