Moosewood Popovers

Recipe Name: Moosewood Popovers

Notes: This is the popover recipe I've had the best luck with. It's from the Moosewood Cookbook, and you can vary the number of eggs you use.

Servings: 12 muffin tin size popovers, 4-6 popover tin sized popovers

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2, 3, or 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (lowfat OK) (If using less than 4 eggs, use 1 cup)
  • 1 1/4 cups flour (If using less than 4 eggs, use 1 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush the insides of 12 muffin cups with meltedbutter. [NOTE: I have had varied success with this, and sometimes I've had better luck not doing this]

2. Beat together the eggs and milk in a medium-sized bowl. Add the flour and salt, and beat with a whisk until reasonably well blended. It's fine if the batter has a few lumps.

3. Fill each muffin cup about one-half to two-thirds full. Bake for 25minutes if using 2 eggs, 30 minute if using 3 eggs, and 35 minutes for 4 eggs. Try to refrain from opening the oven during baking.

4. Remove the popovers from the pan immediately, and prick each with a fork to let the steam escape. (This helps them hold their shape.) Serve as soon as possible, either plain or with butter and/or jam.
