One of my favorite breakfasts at Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa is this Bavarian Popover. If you want to do something really special for your guests invest in 4 oval ramekins baking dishes. We have also made them in round ramekins but have found the oval size is perfect for adding scrambled eggs or fresh fruit in the center.
The original recipe called them Pancakes, but to me, they really are a popover, as they are hollow in the middle when they first come out of the oven.
Makes 4 servings.
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
6 eggs, large
1 cup milk
1 cup flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 460. Beat eggs and add in the cooled melted butter. Add the milk, sifted flour and salt to the egg mixture and beat well. Spray oval baking dishes with cooking oil. Pour batter into dishes. Place on a sheet pan. Bake at 460 for20 minutes. Remove from baking dish and dust with confectionary sugar.
This recipe is so good and all of your guests will think you are a professional breakfast chef. We sometimes add scrambled eggs to make it a savory breakfast or you can keep it sweet and serve with jam and fruit.
