"Ummmm. This tastes so good I feel like I am in a dream."
True story! Real quote from Squirrel after eating one of these popovers. I loved it!
The popover recipe is straight from Pretend Soup, by Mollie Katzen. I love this book! We take it out from the library all the time, and keep it way longer than we are supposed to. (Don't tell anyone!) I also love her book Honest Pretzels. She has another, Salad People, that we have not used, but I bet it is just as good. These books are great because they have easy, pretty healthy recipes (that taste good!). They are written, and then they are 'written' using pictures (kind of like a blog tutorial), so kids can follow the recipe on their own. Really fun!
Anyway, here are our popovers. Most fell immediately before I took the picture. They looked better before, I swear. Either way, they tasted great. We had them with potato cheddar with bacon soup. Comfort foods at their finest!
Easy Popovers, from Pretend Soup, by Mollie Katzen
2 T. butter, melted
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1. Preheat oven to 375, and melt butter.
2. Brush the insides of 12 muffin tins with melted butter.
3. Break eggs into mixing bowl.
4. Add milk and beat well.
5. Add flour & salt and whisk until reasonably blended-it doesn't have to be perfect.
6. Use a 1/4 cup measure to pour batter into each muffin tin. They should be 1/2-2/3 full each.
7. Bake 30 minutes without opening the oven.
8. Remove muffins from pan and prick with a fork to let steam escape.
Mollie suggests butter &/or jam on top, or dipped into maple syrup. That sounds totally delicious, but they were really great as is!
