Mother's Day Popover

In honor of mother's day I took on the challenge of creating one of my mom's all time favorites, the Popover. I call it a challenge because it will be compared to the one that we eat here at Neiman Marcus' The Rotunda. She loves this light, hollow, amazing piece of bread preferably with strawberry butter. If you've never had one, do yourself a favor, go out and get the ingredients if you don't already have it and bake a few! It is surprisingly easy to make.

What to do:
-Preheat oven to 400ยบ
-In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk.
-In a separate bowl bring together the flour and salt then gently whisk in the egg mixture, set aside.
-Place a piece of butter in the bottom of each cup of the popover tin.
-Place the popover tin on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for 3 minutes.
-On the 3 minute mark, take out the tin and quickly divide your batter among the prepared cups.
-Bake for 25 minutes without opening the oven door.
-Serve IMMEDIATELY.... or do what I do.
-Brush each popover with melted butter then dredge in a cinnamon sugar mix. yum!

Found the recipe here.
