Harvard Club of New York Popovers
From our kitchen to yours, our time-tested recipe!
Total time: 70 minutes
1 teaspoon of salt
4 cups of bread flour
2-3/4 cups of milk, divided
2 tablespoons of shortening to grease muffin pans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl, mix the eggs, salt, and flour. Stir in a half a cup of the milk and mix until smooth, then add the rest of the milk a little at a time to avoid lumps. Strain the mixture through a sieve and fill 2-3/4 diameter greased muffin pans 1-1/2 inches deep. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake another 35 minutes.
A nonstick popover pan results in optimal height.
A standard muffin pan works fine but the popovers will be smaller.
