Ingredients:
1/3 C Milk at room temperature (2% or whole)
1/3 C All-purpose flour, sifted (measure after sifting).
1 Teaspoon All-purpose flour (optional – if you like more “insides”).
1 Large Egg (room temperature)
1 pinch Kosher Salt
1 Tsp Unsalted Butter, melted
Unsalted Butter

Instructions:

  • Set the toaster oven on 400F° convection bake and move the rack to the lowest position
  • Liberally butter the inside of two metal 1 cup measuring cups or ceramic ramekins, especially the bottom.
  • Make sure the egg and milk are at room temperature. (see note). Place the egg and milk and melted butter in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Add the flour and salt and whisk until smooth.
  • Place half the batter into each cup and place in oven.
  • Bake until crusty and brown, about 15 minutes or until browned.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325°F and bake another 10 minutes to firm up the insides. Don’t let them burn!
  • Serve hot, with butter and honey.

This makes exactly two popovers, which is great for one hungry person, or two people who like to share. 😎

4 Weight Watcher’s Smart Points each (these are slightly smaller than the recipe that makes 6 or 12 in a real popover pan, so they’re also slightly less “points”

 

Note:

All the milk and eggs must be at room temperature. The physics involved with making the popovers puff up require that steam be created inside,  before the outside hardens. If your ingredients are cold, this won’t happen and the popover won’t puff up.

  1. I do the “popovers for two” in a couple of ceramic ramekins. They’re only a dollar or two. When I do the whole recipe, I use actual popover pans that do 6 each.
