TWD: Popovers

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last did a TWD! I missed the blueberry one three weeks ago, and didn’t realize that the next one was only a week later instead of two, so I missed it as well.

I was prepared this week, though that’s not saying much since I (thankfully) didn’t even have to buy anything — the ingredients are basic and I had all of them in my pantry.

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was hosted by Paula and Amy.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I’ve never made popovers before. I make German pancakes for the girls every weekend but always figured popovers would be a little more fiddly, and I didn’t have the fancy popover pans anyway. I was very happy to see that you can just use cupcake pans.

I ended up getting nine popovers instead of six, and thankfully had two 12-cup pans so I wouldn’t have to bake them in batches. They baked up perfectly, and I didn’t have to worry about storage — they were gone within the hour with requests to make more!

I plan to make these again and play with them a bit, adding parmesan or some herbs to serve with dinner — they beat having to make rolls from scratch!
