Popover is an egg-rich, hollow light bread baked in small cups or pans. A very hot oven creates the steam inside the batter that pops them to magnificent heights. It can be served as sweet or savory. They are excellent, easy and quick breads and can be made for any meal.

I used this recipe to make popovers yesterday night for dinner and it tasted awesome. One normally needs a Popover pan to make these but I used my muffin pan to make them and they turned out pretty good.

Ingredients: (makes 6 popovers)

1 large egg
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp melted butter

• Preheat the oven to 450 degree F.
• In a blender add flour, milk, melted butter, eggs and salt and blend well.
• Pour the blended mixer into greased muffin pan. Fill the muffin pan ¾ full and place them in the middle rack of the oven. This will prevent the popovers from burning.
• Bake for 20 minutes at 450°F. Turn the heat down to 375°F and bake for an additional 20 minutes until they are a crispy golden brown. Serve hot with fruit jam or butter or a combination of both.
