The past week has been a rougher one, with our family dog passing away, then I got sick, now Torrey's sick, so to be perfectly honest, I just haven't felt like blogging. Sorry faithful followers. I know you're all waiting with baited breath for my next post, refreshing your blogger feed with high hopes only to be let down (..no?).
But you can rejoice, today felt like a blogging day! And you can celebrate with a batch of positively poofy popovers!
Not only are they an impressive treat, with their uncontrollable puffed up tops, but they are easier to make than any roll recipe I've ever seen. No yeast = no waiting to rise.
Popovers are very light and airy. I love them on their own, but I recently started stuffing their fluffy insides with fillings like crock pot BBQ chicken. All applications have resulted in successful scrumptiousness.
Popoversfrom Food Wishes
makes 8-10 popovers
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 c. milk
2 Tbsp shredded Gruyere cheese, optional
DirectionsDO NOT preheat oven. That's right, you heard me.
Generously grease muffin tins with butter and oil.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, salt, eggs, milk and cayenne until combined.
Fill greased muffin tins 1/2 to 3/4 with batter. The higher you fill them, the more they will pop.
Put in a cold oven, set to 450 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and puffy. Serve warm.
