Oh the weather was delightful this weekend!
I did more basking and spring cleaning than riding, but am looking forward to riding all week with lovely weather forecast all week!

For a special Easter treat we had popovers-Somehow they seem festive disproportionate to either their complexity or their indulgence-  it's just fun to turn a half a cup of pancake batter into a inflated balloon of pastry!  Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside- delicious with home-made fig jam.
The recipe is dead simple
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tbs melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Whisk the ingredients together until they're very smooth (can be done by hand, but a food processor is easier)  Grease muffin cups or a popover pan, and divide evenly among the cups.
Bake at 400 for 30-35 min. (start checking at 25) or until golden brown.
Enjoy with butter and preserves immediately!


  1. Just made my first popovers recently, the custard cups are much easier to pop than a muffin tin, and your popover pan is better still! My recipe wants a 425 degree oven, but no melted butter.
    And I agree, such decadence for so little work!

  2. I had no idea these were so easy to make! I've been marveling at my wife's skills on those rare occasions she makes them, assuming they were intricate and elaborate. Armed with the information you have provided, I intend to insist on them regularly!
