Barefoot Bloggers: Popovers

The second Barefoot Blogger pick of the month was popovers. At first I was going to skip it since I didn't have a popover pan and didn't really want to get one. Then I read the recipe and it said I could use custard cups. Since they would go good with the potato chowder I was making I decided to give it a try.

They were very easy to make and came out perfectly. They are a little differently shaped than ones made in a popover pan, a little more short and squat, but they taste just the same.

Make 12 popovers

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus softened butter for greasing pans
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, at room temperature
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Generously grease aluminum popover pans or Pyrex custard cups with softened butter. You’ll need enough pans to make 12 popovers. Place the pans in the oven for exactly 2 minutes to preheat. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter until smooth. The batter will be thin. Fill the popover pans less than half full and bake for exactly 30 minutes. Do not peek.

These were easier than I thought they would be. Yours look sensational.

Looks great! I had never heard of "Barefoot Blogger" before I read your post but after reading about it I decided to join too! I'm looking forward to being a part of it and making the recipes!

I wish you could but I don't think it is active anymore. I left last year when they changed the format and it seems a lot of others did too. The last post on there is from December. If you are up for some fun come and join - they have a cooking group and a baking group. They are just one recipe a month. A lot of talented people in the group.
