Fresh Baked Popovers




Fresh Baked Popovers


Recipe by:   Alton Brown from the Food Network

Description:  Hot buttery, creamy inside and crispy brown outside.  These make a beautiful addition to just about any hearty meal and with just a few basic changes can make a light dessert too.   

Prep Time:  10 min          Total Time:  50 min

Oven Temp:  400º          Serves:  6 large popovers

Special Equipment Needed:
Popover Pan

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1 teaspoon room temperature for pan
4 3/4 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 1 cup
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup whole milk, room temperature

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a 6-cup popover pan with the 1 teaspoon of butter.

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process for 30 seconds. Divide the batter evenly between the cups of the popover pan, each should be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes.

Remove the popovers to a cooling rack and pierce each in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape. Serve warm.

Notes:
To make these little beauties into a light and fluffy dessert, add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of sugar to the batter.  While still hot after venting the popovers, brush them all over with melted butter and coat liberally with cinnamon sugar.  Alternatively, coat with powder sugar and drizzle with melted chocolate.
