Cooking with Kids | Popovers
A popover is a light, airy bread that is best described in one word—delicious. According to wikipedia, these unusual muffins are an American take on Yorkshire pudding. My introduction to them came when I was a kid by way of a Winnie-the-Pooh cookbook.
Recently, I introduced them to my kids. I have at least one picky eater who I knew would scoff at the idea of an eggy bread. So, I crafted a sales pitch. “These are uniquely awesome muffins. Each one has a secret chamber you can fill with honey, jam or butter. It’s like a little secret compartment for sweetness!”
For regular readers, you may remember a couple weeks ago, my daughter started making them. She’s since become a pro.
For this recipe, you’ll need:
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 400º. Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
Crack two eggs into a large bowl.
Add 1 cup milk and 1 tablespoon cooking oil.
Add a pinch of salt.
Add 1 cup flour.
Mix until combined.
Fill muffin tins half way with batter.
Wipe off any excess batter. Bake for 25 minutes.
Once they turn golden brown, remove from the oven and serve pipping hot.
Turn your popovers over to reveal a hollow chamber you can fill with butter, jam or honey. Delicious!
