Popovers : TWD/Baking with Julia August 21, 2012

I wasn’t excited about this recipe. I missed the last one because I was on vacation in a rustic cabin and just couldn’t pull it off. Thank you Carmen for emailing the recipe!! I have never made popovers and have eaten them a few times. They just don’t seem all that exciting. I borrowed my neighbors popover pan and began the process. The recipe was super easy, I made it in the blender. I filled the pan about 1/3 full and put it in the oven. I followed the instructions and didn’t open the oven for 25 min. I then let them cook at 350 for an additional 7 min. I had read from other peeps that some felt they were overdone if cooked the whole time. They looked good, had risen and came out of the pan easily. I tasted one without any thing on it and was not impressed. I had also just baked a new cookie and that seemed so much more inviting. I am sure the taste would have improved with butter, jam,or honey. I must admit if I am going to eat something that is baked, I am always drawn towards something sweet. These certainly looked pretty, were easy to make but I probably wouldn’t make them again.
