Popovers are a family favorite. I used to be intimidated to make them, but once I tried, I was amazed at how easy they are! I adapted this recipe from several.
In a large bowl combine:
3 large eggs
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter; melted
maple syrup; for dipping (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°F
Mix all ingredients well and let sit 10 minutes.
Grease a muffin pan and fill each cup 1/2 to 3/4 full of batter.
Bake 35-40 minutes. Do not open oven door while baking (this could cause the popovers to fall). Once you bake them a few times you will learn the correct time for your oven, for us it's 38 minutes.
Note: If using whole wheat flour the popovers will not rise as much as with white flour, but the flavor is wonderful.
Serve with butter and maple syrup (we put some maple syrup in small bowls and dip our popovers into it...yum, yum!)
Makes 9-11 popovers if using a muffin pan, 5-6 if using a popover pan.
