Adapted from "Baking with Julia"
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole milk or 1 cup 2% low-fat milk, at room temperature
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- Position a rack on the lowest rung of the oven and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Butter or spray popover or muffin pans.
- Pour all the ingredients into the container of a blender and whirl until smooth.
- (This can also be done in a food processor or in a bowl, using a rotary or hand-held beater.) Strain the batter if it is at all lumpy.
- For the muffin cups, use 1/4 cup of batter for each cup, filling alternate cups so that every popover has puffing space.
- Bake, without opening the oven door, for 25 minutes, until the popovers are puffed, nicely browned, and crisp on the exterior.
- Turn the temperature down to 350 degrees and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes to help dry out the interior, which, no matter what you do, will always be a little doughy in the center.
- (Some people love this part, others pull it out.) Serve immediately.
- Storing: Popovers are at their puffiest right out of the oven.
- You can hold them at room temperature for a few minutes, or wrap them airtight, freeze them for up to a month, and reheat them in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes, and they'll taste good- but never as good as just baked.
Pretty good overall, mine got way to brown in the first phase of baking so I would time that down a little next time. Thanks for the easy recipe.
Hello Little Bee, loved them! I especially like them because they were slightly undercooked and they were nice and "mushy," new word for the gourmets!! Tried them with 1 teasp each chopped parsely & chopped thyme! Nice change but next time will add cheese and still love them undercooked! Thanks for sharing, Diane :)
Good recipe, nice flavor.
