A Popping Good Day!

First of the month — and a Sunday, which means I will typically fix waffles or scrambled eggs and hashbrowns. But I ran across a recipe for Popovers a few days ago, and having never made them, decided to keep the recipe out on the counter and make them for breakfast one morning. Days went by and I kept forgetting to make Popovers. But today, I finally remembered before we decided on anything else for breakfast. I was afraid DH wouldn’t care for them as they’re not what you’d call a strong flavored bakedgoods. But, they came out nice and crisp on the outside, soft and hollow on the inside — just the way they should. Even those that didn’t ‘pop’ like they should were still very good buttered and topped with a bit of strawberry jam. And easy-peasy to make: 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 2 large eggs. Beat together (I used a wire whip) until no lumps remain and pour into greased muffin cups (if you happen to have a deep welled cupcake pan, pour the batter 3/4 full; if you’re using Pyrex baking cups (like I did), pour the batter 1/2 full.) Bake at 425 deg. for 35 to 40 min. Watch during the last 5 min. to make sure they don’t burn. Then turn them out and enjoy. The recipe says it will make 6 to 9 Popovers. I got 6 out of the recipe. DH really liked them so I’ll work them in as a substitute for waffles — they’re really just as good as waffles, and I don’t have to stand there and ‘man the waffle iron’; I can make them up, put them in the oven, set the timer and go off and read the morning paper or my e-mails. Such a deal!

Please be safe today and in the days to come. Be well, and please be happy. Life comes at us at varying degrees–some moments are happy, and some are incredibly sad. Know that whatever is going on in your life, you’re never alone. Blessings to all…

    My mother used to make these and was always sad when they didn’t pop. I loved the eggyness of them.
    Did I say something about how much I am enjoying you writing here again.
