Maurice, an old friend of ours, let us borrow a box of his mother’s recipes. While going through it we came across a recipe for,”Our Famous Popovers” from Neiman Marcus Zodiac Restaurant. It looks to be an extremely old recipe. We made these and they are a great little vehicle for honey butter, may haw jelly or cane syrup. They are also great with soups or stews (for dipping).

Our Famous Popovers
3 eggs
1¼ cups all purpose flour
1¼ cups milk
Pinch of salt
Oil (for spraying tins)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Grease 12 large muffin tin cups or 12 popover tins. Hand beat eggs with a whip or hand mixer until lemon colored and foamy. Add milk, which is room temperature and stir until well blended but do not over beat. Add flour all at once. Hand beat until foamy and smooth on top. Pour popover batter into a pitcher and fill muffin pans with batter ¾ full. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. Remove popovers from tins and serve hot. Caution: do not open the door to check popovers or they will fall.
