Roberta’s Popovers That Always Pop

Roberta Felegy has worked at Irma’s Finland House for many, many years, and although popovers aren’t necessary Scandinavian, hers are always a tremendous hit at the store.

1 cup all-purpose flour or ¾ cup all purpose flour and ¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 cup milk
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter

Start preheating oven to 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. When the oven is preheated, turn it down to 400 degrees. Coat popover pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place the empty pan in the oven to preheat. (I will probably preheat the pan for 10 to 15 minutes.) Remove the pan from the oven and add batter to each cup. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Leaving the popovers in the oven, turn the temperature down to 350 degrees and bake 20 minutes more. Use a paring knife to poke a hole in the side of each popover. Turn the oven off but leave the popovers in the pan in the oven for 5 more minutes.
