Today’s Tuesdays With Dorie—Baking With Julia recipe for Popovers just might be the easiest recipe in the book! I can’t believe I’ve never made popovers. I think I always thought they were difficult.
Take some milk, a couple eggs, salt, flour and some melted butter and blend them in a blender for a minute. Pour the batter into some custard cups (or muffin tins) and bake. It’s fun to turn on the oven light (but DON’T open the oven door) and watch them pop up over the cup. Even the boys got a kick out of it. Taylor saw me pour the batter in to each cup and wasn’t thrilled that we were having that for part of our dinner. But he was excited to see the risen popovers!
I don’t even have much more to say because it was so simple and they tasted great!
I have six 3/4 cup glass custard cups, as the recipe suggested, but it was supposed to be nine. I was ready to put a little batter in some mini muffins cups, but after filling each custard cup with 1/3 of a cup, I was out of batter when only the six were filled. I didn’t actually measure the 1/3 cup, just eyeballed it, so I’m sure that was why it was all used up. No matter, six popovers were perfect for us. Everybody ate one and followed suit with the suggest dripping butter and honey.
So simple. If you’d like the recipe, our hosts this week are Paula from Vintage Kitchen Notes and Amy from Bake With Amy. They’ll have the recipes. What would my life be like without Tuesdays With Dorie? ;) Well, I can certainly say I have loved every minute of it and baking new recipes that I often would not have ever tried otherwise. After finishing Dorie Greenspan’s Baking From My Home to Yours, I was torn about sticking with the group and starting on Baking With Julia, but I’m really glad I’ve done so!
