Ingredients
Instructions
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Butter the inside of your popover pan (you’ll need a pan with 6 popover cups or you can use a 12-cup muffin tin).
  • Gather all of your ingredients and supplies.
  • Combine the flour and salt in a small bowl. This is the bowl you add any herbs or spices to that you plan to use.
  • Warm your mik to 115-125 degrees F.
  • Put your pan in the oven to preheat.
  • Add the eggs to a large mixing bowl and whisk them until they turn pale yellow and full of air.
  • While pouring the milk into the bowl, continue whisking until it is frothy.
  • Now, I switch to my hand whisk. Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Do not dump it all at once this will remove air from the liquid.
  • Gently turn the mixture just until the flour is incorporated.
  • Just as the last of the flour is moistened, add the melted butter. Gently combine and stop mixing.
  • Your batter should be the consistency of pancake batter or heavy cream with small lumps in it.
  • Avoid overmixing. This removes the air from the batter and will cause deflated popovers.
    The air is your only rising agent.
    If you overmix Einkorn flour in a recipe, the baked product will collapse as it cools so there’s double jeopardy involved with overmixing in this recipe.
  • Quickly remove the preheated pan from the oven and close door immediately.
  • Fill each cup 3/4 full of batter and bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees F.
  • Without opening the oven door, turn the temperature down to 325 degrees F and bake another 20 minutes.
  • They should be puffed up and golden brown when done.
  • Immediately remove the popovers from the pan and place them on a cooling rack.
  • Use a toothpick or the point of a small knife to gently poke a hole in the side of each one. This will allow the steam to escape and help to avoid collapasing.
  • Serve as soon as possible.
For Cinnamon Sugar Einkorn Popovers
  • Add 1 tsp of ground cinnamon and 1 Tbs of sugar to the flour and salt bowl.
  • Add flour mixture to egg and milk as directed.
  • Add 1 tsp vanilla to the batter when you add the melted butter.
  • While the popovers bake, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 2-3 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter.
  • When you remove the popovers from the pan to the cooling rack, brush them with the butter and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the tops or roll them in it in the bowl.
  • Serve as soon as possible.
For Garlic Butter Popovers
  • Crush 2-3 cloves of garlic (adjust to your taste) with a garlic press or chop very fine.
  • Add this to the flour and salt in their separate bowl. Add flour mixture to egg and milk as directed.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter and add fresh crushed garlic or garlic powder to the butter and combine well.
  • When the popovers are out of the oven and on the cooling rack, brush the tops and sides with the garlic butter.
  • Serve as soon as possible.
