There are just a few things that my family and I know to be my grandma's favorite treats: chocolate covered cherries, pineapple upside down cake, and POPOVERS! If you have never had a popover you truly are missing out. I recently discovered what I consider the 3 keys to making sure your popovers, well...pop:)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
4 large eggs
2 cups milk
Preheat your oven (and popover pan-secret number 1) to 400 F degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine flour and salt. In a pot whisk together eggs and milk, cook over medium heat until slightly warmer than room temperature (this is another secret!). Now combine egg mixture to the flour mixture, stir until just combined-do not over stir. Lightly grease your now warm popover pan if using spray butter (if using stick butter you may want to grease the pan before heating it). Fill pan cups until just under 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 400 F degrees for 20 minutes, then decrease heat to 350 F degrees and bake for another 20 minutes. Do not open the oven to check on them in between, this can cause them to deflate (secret number 3!). Makes 12 medium size popovers.
