Popovers- 11/8/09


A popover is a light, hollow roll made from eggs, milk, flour, and a bit of salt.  Tonight I decided to bake some popovers and they turned out to be a wonderful light and tasty quick bread to make. The name "popover" comes from the fact that the batter swells or "pops" over the top of the muffin tin while baking.  If you enjoy baking, you will be amazed at how easy it is to make popovers!   Popovers are show-off at the table because of their dramatic looking fragile puffs.  When the popovers are brought out to the dinner table, for sure you get lots of oooo and ahh's!  

Since I served them freshly out the oven you can still see the steam escaping when the popovers are split in half.

They are puffy, tender, crunchy and piping hot all at the same time.  Give them a try! .  

A little butter is spread on the popovers and they are delicious!
