i first had popovers in high school. we had a british-themed night. watched some monty python.
it's true. i've been a huge nerd for quite some time.
popovers are fun. minimal effort, and they do all kinds of funky stuff in the oven.
this one reminds me of the nike swoosh.
this one is like half dome.
i thought i'd get all fancy and add a cinnamon swirl and a little vanilla extract.
it didn't add materially to the taste . . . popovers really need gravy if you're serving them with roast beef a la the brits, or butter and jam if you're going for brunch.
i think maybe a little sugar would also help. make them a bit more like miniature dutch babies.
fresh out of the oven, popovers have a nice crispy crust, with an airy and tender center.
the craters are perfect to fill with nice salty butter.
