Easy popovers ^^

I love easy, straightforward recipes ^^.. especially when it involves dairy! And popovers seems just it! No baking powder, no long resting period! Aaaah.. my kind of baking ^^!

Popovers (recipe from thekitchn)
1 cup/ 8oz milk
2 eggs
3 tbsps unsalted butter, melted (less is fine ^^)
1 cup/ 5oz flour
a pinch of salt
grated cheddar cheese (optional)
grated parmesan cheese (optional)

1. In a food processor/blender or with a whisk+bowl, blend milk, eggs and 1 tbsp of melted butter till combined.

2. Add flour and beat till frothy and bubbly. Leave batter to rest while oven heats.

3. Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Put popover tin or muffin pan in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove tin and grease with remaining melted butter.

4. Beat batter till frothy again just before pouring into greased tins. Pour into tins till 3/4 full. Top with cheeses if preferred (top generously ^^!)

5. Bake at 450F/230C for 15 minutes. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR FOR 15 mins! Then reduce heat to 350F/180C and bake for another 15 minutes or till popovers turn golden brown, feel dry to the touch and sound hollow when tapped. I forgot to check and left the popovers baking for 30 minutes instead! But no harm done.. we love the very browned crusty popovers! ^^

* I managed to make 10 popovers.. 5 cheese and 5 plain ^^ Best served straight from the oven! ^^

These are YUUUMMMY!!! My piggies LOOOOOVVVE it!!! Especially the ones with cheese ^^! I love mine plain with butter and jam ^^ mmm, I think I like these more than I do scones with butter/clotted cream and jam! ^^

p.s. i've never heard of popovers till i read it in justonecookbook blog. thank you for sharing, nami ^^

I loves easy recipes too when I am lazy....I never attempted to bake popovers before because I thought it needed that special baking mould...and oh you just bake that in muffin pan only. Oh wow, since you have yelled out really that delicious, I believe it is indeed yummy. I have been lazy n kind of moody lately, so wasnt up to cook or bake any fancy new recipes.

I need to get myself some popover pans! I want to try making these myself. Simple ingredients too! Which makes it easy when I`m deciding on what to make. :)
