1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Kitchen Equipment Needed
Nonstick Pop Over Pan or Muffin Tin
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with a whisk.
Step 3: Divide batter and ladle equal portions into each muffin cup.
Step 4: Do not leave the batter sit! Bake immediately for best results. (I know this from experience!)
Step 5: Check for doneness in 30 minutes. Remove when smooth and golden brown. Do not overbake. Baking may take up to an hour.
Step 6: Once removed from the oven, remove and tilt them slightly to let the steam escape or they will sog out quickly.
Makes 6. You may need to make a double batch as these will disappear quickly! Figure at least 2 per person.
Prepare your fried bacon and any other dishes while they are baking so that everything is ready and the table is set when these come out of the oven.A specialty pan isn't a complete necessity, but your pop overs will bake higher and be lighter in an proper pan than in a muffin tin.
