This isn't the first time a food has been renamed. As a kid my brother called hamburgers, 'hammy burgers,' and I call spaghetti 'spisketti.' Then in my early teens I blurted out kibis instead of kiwis while at the store. Yes, this happens all too often. So, onward now that we have had a flashback.
Mike's parents got me a popover pan for Christmas. Which is awesome, even though I've never eaten nor made a popover in my life. Can't say it's something I ever even looked at making even when looking through a cookbook. At first I just thought it was a dessert. Ok cool, I love baking sweet treats. Well, lets talk about that.
So I used a very basic recipe that came on the packaging of the pan.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp melted butter
Mix dry then add wet. Fill 'puffin' cups 2/3 full. Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-23 minutes until puffed and golden.
Note the golden and puffed part. Also, something my recipe failed to tell me. YOU MUST POKE 'PUFFINS' WITH A FOR TO LET STEAM ESCAPE! You can do this on the side as some recipes call for (right at the level of the pan and 'puffin.' Or at the top right in the middle. If you do not do this upon your 'puffins' exiting the oven they will fall A LOT and be super soggy and chewy.
|Soggy and Chewy - eww|
|Cooked longer and poked to release steam, much better.|
Now go out and make something you've never made :) and have some fun.
