Popovers a la Adair
Yield: 6 large Popovers
6 Large Eggs
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Pinch of salt
2 cups milk ( any kind but skim milk)
2 cups all-purpose flour
Beat the eggs in a medium bowl with a wire whisk. Add the butter and salt, and then whisk in the milk. Stir in the flour, leaving small lumps.
Do NOT over beat. Cover the batter with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight
(Note: Brad prepares the batter on the morning he bakes them and he leaves his batter very lumpy)
Place the oven rack on the lowest setting and preheat the oven to 400F.
Spray six 3/4 –cup ovenproof glass cups with cooking spray.
Remove the batter from the refrigerator and stir the batter until it is relatively smooth but still has some lumps (suggested is a lot of lumps)
Ladle the batter into the cups, filling them three-quarters full.
Place the cups on a baking sheet, allowing some space between them, and place the baking sheet on the lowest oven rack.
Bake the popovers for about 50 minutes, until puffed and brown.
To prevent the popovers from collapsing, avoid opening the oven door during the first 40 minutes of baking. Serve immediately.
