Easy Popovers - Yum!
Here is a fun and easy recipe to try. And the best thing is I guarantee you will have all the ingredients in your pantry!
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup milk, at room temperature
3/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
3 TB butter
Heat the oven to 450. Whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, and salt until they are mostly combined. (A few lumps is okay.) Cut the butter into 12 equal slivers and put one piece into each cup of a nonstick muffin tin. Put the tin in the oven until the butter is melted which will take about a minute or maybe two. Take the tin out and fill each cup about half full with the batter. Then bake the popovers until they are puffy and brown - about 15 minutes.
The trick to popovers - and the part kids love - is watching them "pop!" To help them pop make sure you keep the oven door closed until they are done baking. I guarantee your kids will love watching these bake in the oven. It's like magic!
