Angry Chicken recently made a batch of popovers and boy did that take me back!

My favorite aunt gave me my own Betty Crocker cookbook for my 12th birthday and one of the first things I learned to make was popovers. Four ingredients, a simple method and a hot oven make them a good introduction to baking.

I used to whip up a batch, cover them with a tea towel and rush them next door to share with my grandparents. They are the perfect foil for the jams I made this summer.

I overcome the sticking in the muffin tin problem with a generous spray of Pam baking spray. Chemical, yes. Sticking, no.

These are a blank canvas and are good with herbs or a smallish amount of shredded cheese in them as an accompaniment to roasted meats (Hello Fall!)
