(from Anthony's Restaurant)
Yield: 6 Popovers
Difficulty Level: Easy (but you need a popover pan)
- 2 Tbl Garlic Powder
- 1 C. Flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 large eggs
- 1 C milk
- 1 Tbl unsalted butter, melted
- 2 Tbl unsalted butter, cut into 6 even pieces
Oil or spray (with non-stick vegetable oil spray) popover pan.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and set oven rack in middle of oven.
Preheat popover cups in oven about 2 minutes.
Blend flour, garlic, salt, eggs, milk and melted butter until the
mixture is the consistency of cream. About 1-2 minutes. This can
be mixed in a food processor, blender, electric mixer, or with a
hand mixer. The batter can be made ahead of time and stored in the
refrigerator. Batter should be used at room temperature.
Place 1 small piece of butter in each cup and place pans back in
preheated oven until butter is bubbly -- about 1 minute. Fill each
cup half-full with batter and bake 20 minutes. Reduce temperature
to 325 degrees and continue baking. (It doesn't say how long!!)
Recipe Story: I (Ron) first went to Anthony's restaurant
in the North Beach area of San Francisco about 8 years ago (with
my friend Jack Murphy from HP). They served these fantastic popovers
and also freely gave out the recipe. Unfortunately they went out
of business a few years later. Luckily I'm now able to make these
myself. I hope you enjoy!
