2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
2 cups milk
melted unsalted butter for brushing the pan
- Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk together eggs and milk in a smaller bowl. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, and stir until the batter is smooth.
- Heat a twelve-cup popover pan (I use a muffin pan) or twelve 2/3-cup custard cups for 5 minutes in a 450 degree oven. Brush the cups with melted butter, then fill each cup half full with batter.
- Bake the popovers in the middle of the 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake the popovers for 15 minutes more, or until they are golden brown and crisp.
