almond popovers

May 16, 2011
You know how we sometimes choose an outfit to go with a pair of shoes?   This is the food equivalent of such situation.  
What could pair perfectly with my Banana-Lime Jam?  Almond popovers, of course.
It's the beauty of backwards design and in this case, I picked a winning outfit.
Popovers are made with an egg batter much like a pancake batter.  To make it as smooth as possible, or rather, as quick as possible, I used my Magic Bullet.  You can just toss all the ingredients in and be done!

Almond Popovers
(yields 6 popovers)
2 eggs
1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. almond extract
a palmful of sliced and chopped almonds

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Butter 6 cups in your popover pan (or muffin tin) and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to a food processor or Magic Bullet and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into buttered muffin tin.  
  4. Place pan in the oven and decrease temperature to 350 degrees.  Bake 16-20 minutes.
  5. Immediately remove when the tops begin to brown.  
  6. Quickly take out each popover and place on a rack to cool.
Serve with Banana-Lime Jam

This sounds like a great recipe but I'm afriad to try it because I can't understand how they can turn out without any flour or flour substitute - just eggs and milk. I'm scared that what I'll end up with is 6 muffin sized omlettes. Has anyone tried this recipe with success?

I think they'd work a bit like souffle/pancakes @ Anonymous

I made them, and they turned out nothing like the picture. They wouldn't rise, and I baked them for about an hour. Yeah, they were like tiny, wet omlettes. :-(
