TWD - Popovers

Well...what to say...popovers, ya. Oh, I did as I promised and followed the recipe. Well, I did not change the ingredients. I did change up the preparation just a smidge. Nothing too crazy, but I forgot to pull out my eggs before I started and they are supposed to be room temp. So I heated the milk and eggs together, but in my defense I had read that that helps them pop and oh did mine pop! I was pretty excited about them. I hadn't made popovers before, so I was 50/50 on the achievement of success. But success I achieved!

pop goes the popover

So when I pulled those beauties out of the oven and proceeded to crack one open, I looked inside and thought what happened? Where did the guts go? Well no guts, no glory. I was not enthralled with these. Apparently they are supposed to be slightly hollow, but where's the flavor? I ask you, please, tell me where is the flavor?

Maybe you could give this recipe a shot and tell me if yours have flavor?

  2. Beautifully puffed popover!
    Speaking of flavour: I made mine in 3 different ways:
    a) following the recipe
    b) I sprinkled sugar and vanilla on them before baking
    c) mixing Grana cheese, rosemary and spices

    we liked the 3 of them but b+c were so much better

  3. The flavor is what ever you put in the. ham and cheese, butter and jam, strawberry butter, honey etc.

    1. I'm convinced! I'll try again...they are so very easy. What about a cream filling? Similar to a cream puff I suppose, ya...ok!

  5. Such gorgeous popovers!!! I added Gruyére cheese to the tops and that made them quite tasty ~ give it a try ~ it just may make you convert! :)

  6. I bumped up the salt to 1 tsp (kosher) and added 1 Tbsp sugar to the second batch, which seemed to help. they're related to cream puffs, so definitely need an accompaniment. yours look great!

    1. Thanks, the amp'ed up salt and added sugar sound like a good idea.

  8. Yours puffed beautifully! The hollow is definitely made for stuffing or slathering.
