Popovers

Here's another one for posterity. I found it in my old email box, back when I asked mom for the recipe while living in the dorms:

POPOVERS

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees - place well-oiled iron muffin pan in oven while you prepare batter.

Put into blender*: (you can double or multiply by 1.5)

1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP melted butter

Blend until smooth; pour into muffin cups about 2/3 of the way. Check at 20 minutes; remove if brown. The magic is the hot oil in the hot pans. They will be popunders if you do not preheat the pan.

Enjoy!

*I find they work pretty well if you use mixers. You can actually just mix vigorously, if it comes to that.

And for those of us who DIDN't get to have the cast iron muffin pan, a regular one works pretty well. Shave about 5 minutes off the time or they will look like the cremated popovers at Nora's.
