Yep, a brand spanking new popover pan. I am here to tell you the difference one pan can make is huge! For years I have wanted a popover pan and seemed to always miss them before they disappeared. This Christmas was my year! Macgyver was able to find one for me in a local store and snagged it for one of my presents. I was thrilled when I opened it. For a while now I have been using a muffin pan to make our popovers. While a muffin pan does work to a point, you still end up with popovers that resemble hockey pucks on occasion. No matter what you do, 2 out of the 12 muffin cups ends up giving you pucks. Which, in turn, may lead to some colorful vocabulary similar to puck as you pull the pan from the oven.
I was so happy to see and touch a real live popover pan. I know, I’m a sad woman. In my defense, unless you have baked trays of hockey pucks you won’t understand. Just so excited I almost melted the elastic in my underwear. Of course I pulled the pan out and gave it a test drive to see just how big a difference a pan would make.
I even tried a new recipe and loved it!
What you will need:
4 large eggs
2T. vegetable oil
Doing the deed:
Set your oven at 450. Whisk together your milk, eggs & oil then add flour and mix until smooth. Fill pan half full with batter and bake for 16 to 20 minutes. You are looking for a golden brown. Once perfect color is reached turn off oven and let popovers sit in the heat an extra 4 to5 minutes. Take out and enjoy real popovers, not hockey pucks.
