Hey guys,

It’s often that around 5:30-6ish we have a little pre-dinner craving and it’s always hard to find something not too filling to eat so that at 8ish we are still hungry enough for dinner.

Tonight my little cupboard creation was:

  1. Toast bread
  2. Mix plain yoghurt with chopped fresh dill and a quarter lemon juice
  3. Spread on bread and drizzle some Sel de Guérande atop to give it a little crunch.

It would also make a great little canapé cut in little circles or squares.

Enjoy!

As I was walking around my supermarket today some old ladies were talking about making “popovers”…intrigued by the name I asked them what that was and they mentioned these were little bread-like oven-baked yummy cute things…

So thanks to Google, I found a recipe online, which I of course tried out right away to enjoy them tonight.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 cup flour (I used a gluten-free flour mix)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 additional unsalted butter
  • 1 popover pan

Prepare the Popover Pan

Place oven rack at lowest position in your oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the popover pan on an aluminum lined cooking sheet. Prepare the pan by thoroughly greasing it with unsalted butter.

Mix the Popover Batter

In medium bowl, combine flour and salt. In a small bowl, crack your two eggs. In another medium bowl, combine milk, eggs and the melted butter. Beat it well.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir with wire whisk until it’s just blended. You’ll see that the batter will be thin. And it’s okay if there are some lumps.

Bake the Popovers

Pour batter into your popover pan. Fill each cup half-way. Place the cookie sheet and the pan into the hot oven and bake for 20 minutes. Be sure not to open the door while its cooking.

After 20 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 15-20 minutes longer. The popovers are done when they are a deep golden-brown color.

Serve the popovers with your favorite sweet or savoury spread as this little puffy bread has quite a neutral taste.

Mine looked like this (did not puff up as much as I wanted but I think it is due to the non-traditional flour I used)

Bon appétit!
