I can’t believe I lived my entire life up until last year without ever having eaten a Pop Over. I know! Sheltered a bit, I guess! So if it’s possible that I never had one, much less made one, I assume that maybe there is someone else out there who’s not in the know…and it’s my duty to share.
Pop Overs are like French Toast – except so much better! They are tall and puffy coming out of the oven – kind of magical – and once you cover them in syrup and a handful of fresh fruit, well, you’re in heaven. I’ll bet anything you already have the ingredients on hand and it only takes about 10 minutes to whip up the batter then another 30 minutes of baking time – so why not try them out this weekend? You’ll love them!
Breakfast Pop Overs
makes 6 (enough for 3-4 people)
1 cup milk
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup sugar
2-3 Tablespoons Butter
Preheat Oven to 375.
Divide the butter into the 6 cups of your Pop Over Pan. If you don’t own one, you can use a muffin tin, but you will need to use all 12 cups. Just divide the butter up evenly) Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes while you are making the batter.
In medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and sugar, then whisk in the flour. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups and return to oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another 25 minutes. The Pop Overs will be tall and golden, puffed and gorgeous. Remove from pans and serve with your favorite toppings.
Here’s a picture of the Pop Overs we had last weekend…topped with berries from our garden and maple syrup – Yum! Make them this Saturday and your Hub will be wrapped around your little finger – he’ll even do laundry and yardwork! (well, mine did anyway. I hope it was the Pop Overs.) Enjoy your weekend!
