Do you ever go through phases in your baking? Well, we apparently do. Last night we were trying to think of something to have as an after dinner treat. Something light and easy to make. We thought of popovers, which we haven’t had for quite a while. Probably about a year. Why? We don’t know, as they’re really easy to make, and they taste great; plus, they’re not overly filling or sweet.
We didn’t have anything to put in our popovers, so we simply decided to go with a bit of almond flavor, and a few sliced almonds on top. After baking, we’d give them a little sprinkle of powdered sugar, for just the tiniest bit of sweetness, and we’d have a dessert. Perfect for a couple of scratchers after a long day.
Make absolutely sure that your ingredients are at room temperature. We measure out the milk and take out the egg and let them sit on the counter for about an hour. It really helps make these babies pop.
Procedure in detail:
This is a really simple recipe, but, if you need more details on how to make popovers, you can check out one of our popover recipes: Parmesan Sage Popovers, Raspberry Popovers, or the standard on which these are all based, Popovers. We do provide a couple of pictures and tips.
We loved these. Simple, and once they’re in the oven, you can go about your business until it’s time to lower the temperature. We will say that these could have used just a bit more almond flavor; we’ve increased the amount in the recipe above for you. Four stars.
