Popovers

It's so strange having so much time at home alone. My parents at work, my brother at school, and my sister not coming back from college for another 1 1/2 weeks. I haven't been alone like this for months. And though I've been saying that I can't wait to get away from all the people and just luxuriate in my solitude, now that I have it, I miss my friends. D'aw. Such is the nature of life.


I think a part of what I miss is having the large crowd to cook for. I could bake anything and know that it would always get eaten. But I didn't have the time or space to do so. Now that I have the time, I don't have the people to eat my things! This is the face I am currently making to express these emotions.


I am trying to make practical foods for my family. But it's very difficult when I just want to make a massive, three layer cake. Every. Day. So let me know if you need something like that, haha. Anyway. Popovers are like the easiest thing in the world to make. I kid you not. And I'm fairly certain a special pan is not necessary. A plain ol' muffin pan will do just fine. 



Popovers

 2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
a bit of butter for the bottom of each cup
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place your pan in the oven while it preheats.
In the meantime, in a medium bowl beat eggs slightly, Beat in flour and until just smooth; being careful not to overbeat. Remove pan from oven and place a piece of butter in the bottom of each cup. Fill custard cups 1/2 full.
Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 20 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for 10 minutes more. Immediately remove from cups and serve piping hot.
