For us, that aroma conjures feelings of warmth and home, and it's a perfect choice for breakfast on this chilly Sunday morning, here in New England.
I tried this recipe last year with great success. It's easy to follow and the results are restaurant quality. They're great on their own, or with butter or jam. Enjoy!
3 1/2 cups of milk
4 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. of baking powder
6 large eggs, at room temperature
- Preheat your oven to 450.
- Warm the milk. If you do it in the microwave, it takes about 2 minutes. It should be warm to the touch.
- Sift the dry ingredients.
- Beat the eggs until light and frothy. This takes 2-3 minutes with an electric mixer.
- Add the milk and mix on low.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix on medium another 2 minutes or so.
- Let the batter rest about an hour. This is important.
- Spray your popover pan with non-stick spray.
- After the batter has rested, fill your popover pan cups nearly to the top.
- Place your popover pan on a cookie sheet.
- Bake the popovers at 450 for 15 minutes.
- Then turn down the oven to 375 and bake for another 25-35 minutes...until they're a deep, golden brown.
