I have a love/hate relationship with popovers. While I love them, seriously love them. I cannot make them....
Occasionally I will hit it... but normally, they are duds.
So I have spent the last three months, off and on, trying to perfect these little suckers. After many tries, I can declare officially, I have beaten the popover.
So here is how I did it.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled,
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 cup whole milk, room temperature
- 1/4 t salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease a 6-cup popover pan with the 1 teaspoon of butter.
Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process for 30 seconds. Divide the batter evenly between the cups of the popover pan, each should be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes.
Remove the popovers to a cooling rack and pierce each in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape. Serve warm.
