Granny's Perfect Popovers

My Gran used to make popovers for me after school as a treat. She'd fill them with apricot or strawberry jam, which to this day, is still my favourite way of eating them. You can also turn them into additions to High Tea by filling them with smoked salmon and cream cheese, with an assortment of micro-greens.

They're a take on the Yorkshire pudding, but without the oil. I don't know about you, but I've had a Yorkshire pudding disaster and as a result have shied away from them. This is the perfect alternative :)

Recipe after the jump >>

1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsb melted butter
1 cup milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C (450°F) - place greased gem pans or muffin pans into the oven to heat
    NOTE: The secret to this recipe is to have your pans piping hot when you pour the mixture into them!
  2. Sift together flour and salt
  3. Make a well in the flour
  4. Break eggs into the well, add melted butter and milk
  5. Stir until smooth
  6. Pour into hot, greased gem pans or muffin pans
  7. Bake in the oven at 230°C (450°F) for 30 minutes
  8. Reduce the heat to 180°C (350°F) and bake for another 15 minutes
Makes six Popovers :)
Light and fluffy, perfect for afternoon tea
