Popovers

I'm somewhat of an anglophile, and for years, my mom has been making popovers... They're a nice alternative to yeasty rolls or biscuits...and they take WAYYYYY less time.

**CAUTION** Because these are very souflee-like, I've NEVER been able to get them to rise at high altitudes. So, if you live in Utah or Phoenix or Colorado Springs or something, you might end up with hockey pucks. I tried all of the "high altitude tricks," but they never worked. For those of you at sea-level, enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup milk
3 eggs
1 T sugar
2 T melted butter
1/4 t. salt
1 cup unbleached white flour

Preheat oven to 400, place ungreased muffin cups in the oven for 5-10 minutes

1. Generously grease 12 heated muffin cups
2. In a blender, combine milk, eggs, sugar (or honey), flour and salt
3. Blend until smooth, stopping machine occasionally to scrape sides
4. pour batter into cups until they're half full (or half empty...depending on what kind of day you're having)
5. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees, then reduce temperature to 350 and bake for another 30-40 minutes....DO NOT OPEN PREMATURELY!!! THEY'LL FALL!!!!

Anglophile - what a great word!

I don't know what altitude I'm at. That said, I'm going to live on the edge and make these. And probably google my altitude before I do.

Wow, those look good. Stinks that I live in Utah so they won't work out. But then again, I am scared of making any kind of bread product- I'd probably screw it up anyway.

I'm not a great bread maker, so there was no chance in you-know-where that I'd get them to work when we lived in Utah...it's a bummer.....the GOOD news is that the hockey pucks TASTED fine...but they were only 1" tall. =)
