Baking with Julia - Popovers
Anyway, on this week's Baking with Julia recipe!
My first thought when I read this week's pick was 'what on earth is a popover?' Some research showed it seems to be a cross between a profiterole and a Yorkshire pudding. Very interesting!
I made these yesterday afternoon and was very happy that worked and puffed up like they were supposed to. Even after reading all the suggestions though I still wasn't really sure how to serve them. Or even what meal they are supposed to be. I ate one warm from the oven and enjoyed it, if only for the novelty of never having eaten one before.
Hubby came home, had one look and promptly declared they needed custard. Guess he thought they were like profiteroles too. So being the awesome man he is, he made his own chocolate custard and had one for dessert!
Our hosts this week are Paula from Vintage Kitchen Notes and Amy of Bake with Amy. They will have the recipe up today so make sure you check it out!
